Where Are they Now? Evonne Goolagong
A runner-up at Wimbledon on three occasions, Goolagong Cawley's record on her retirement from the Tour in 1983 included the French Open title in 1971 and four consecutive triumphs at the Australian Open. She was denied a United States Open singles title in four consecutive finals.
She married Roger Cawley in 1975 and two years later they purchased 70 acres on Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, and built a 20-court tennis centre. Their daughter, Kelly Inala, was born in 1977, and their son, Morgan Kiema, was born in 1981. The family moved to Florida in 1986 and to Queensland, Australia, in 1992.
The death of her mother, Melinda, last year prompted Evonne, the third eldest of eight children from New South Wales, to re-examine her part-Aboriginal background. The result is a book, due to be published soon.
