49 is no age. RIP to a wonderful tennis player, and by all accounts, a lovely person.

Sad to hear this news today. When she lost the 1993 Wimbledon Singles Final to Steffi Graf she created one of those iconic sporting moments as the Duchess of Kent gave her a shoulder to cry on that will live on for years to come.

Oh, that is sad, so young really. I remember her playing at Wimbledon, the 1993 final of course, the 1997 final and when she won it in 1998. RIP.

Indeed it is one of iconic moments, and very sad.
