Bio Florence Angela Margaret Mortimer Barrett is a former World No. 1 British female tennis player. She was born in Plymouth, Devon, England. She is married to the veteran BBC commentator John Barrett.

Mortimer won three Grand Slam singles titles, at the 1955 French Championships, the 1958 Australian Championships, and Wimbledon in 1961.

Mortimer teamed with Anne Shilcock to win the women's doubles title at Wimbledon in 1955. That was Mortimer's only career Grand Slam women's doubles title. She teamed with Coghlan to reach the women's doubles final at the 1958 Australian Championships.

Mortimer and Peter Newman reached the mixed doubles final at the 1958 Australian Championships. That was her only career Grand Slam mixed doubles final.

According to Lance Tingay of the Daily Telegraph and the Daily Mail, Mortimer was ranked in the world top ten from 1953 through 1956 and from 1958 through 1962, reaching a career high of World No. 1 in those rankings in 1961.

Mortimer was inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame in 1993.


A wily tactician with a limitless supply of determination, Angela Mortimer became one of the few women from Great Britain to win Wimbledon during the twentieth century.
Her triumph on the fabled Centre Court in 1961 was entirely well received by an appreciative public as she prevailed in a nerve wracking final against compatriot Christine Truman. Despite having a significant hearing problem that left her partially deaf, Mortimer still managed to take three of the four majors in singles. She went on to serve as captain of the British Wightman and Fed Cup squads.

Angela Mortimer was inducted into Tennis Hall of Fame in 1993.
