Winifred Mason Shaw was Scotland’s most successful tennis player of her era, reaching the quarter-finals at Wimbledon twice.

Born in Glasgow in 1947, she followed her mother, multiple Scottish champion Winifred Mason, into tennis and enjoyed multiple Grand Slam successes, particularly in doubles.

Between 1966 and 1972 she reached three quarter-finals, seven semi-finals and two finals across the French, Australian and US Opens and Wimbledon.

She was twice a runner-up in doubles at the French Open, in 1971 alongside Toomas Leius (USSR) and a year later when she and fellow Briton Nell Truman lost out to the great Billie Jean King (USA) and Betty Stove (Netherlands).

In singles, to the delight of the crowds at SW19, she reached the Wimbledon ladies singles quarter-finals in both 1970 and 1971.

In 1972, there was more progress to celebrate at Wimbledon as Winnie reached the semi-finals of the ladies doubles alongside another Scot, Joyce Williams.

Having married and become Winifred Wooldridge, she died in Woking in 1992, aged 45.
