ANGELA MORTIMER, the 1961 Wimbledon champion, is to be inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame at Newport, Rhode Island, on 10 July. Mortimer, who is married to John Barrett, the BBC commentator, won the French championship in 1955, the Australian title in 1958 and three years later defeated Christine Truman in the first all-British Wimbledon final since 1914. Her success, at the age of 29, was Britain's first in the singles events at the All England Club since Dorothy Round's victory in 1937.
