Pat Cash became an Australian sporting icon in 1987 when he beat Ivan Lendl in the Wimbledon Grand Slam Final. Having already won the junior Wimbledon title, it was a dream come true for Cash and one that would cement his place in Australian sporting history.
Cash is well remembered on the tennis circuit not only for his hard hitting but for wearing his chequered wrist and head bands, which he often threw into the crowd after a match. His Wimbledon victory celebration is just as infamous where he climbed into the stands and up to the player's box where he celebrated with his Coach, Girlfriend and Family. This celebration has become somewhat of a Wimbledon tradition and is now followed by other winners, not just at Wimbledon but at other major tournaments around the world.
Since retirement from the Men’s Grand Slam circuit, Pat Cash has been just as busy off the field as he was on it. Based in the UK for much of the year, Cash has been a regular at corporate speaking events, commentator for the BBC and a host of CNN's tennis-focused magazine show Open Court.
Not one to be away from the court for too long, Cash has also coached several players on the Grand Slam circuit including Mark Philippoussis and Greg Rusedski . In addition, he has coached several top junior players from Australia and opened the Pat Cash Tennis Academy on the Gold Coast for aspiring young tennis players.
