Cheer on former British tennis ace Sue Barker as she takes on an American opponent in the Ladies Indoor Tennis BP Cup. Join the spectators as they applaud some excellent play from the stands and keep track of the score on the "USA v GB" scoreboard. When this footage was shot, Barker was the reigning French Open champion. Not bad for a girl from Paignton!
During her tennis career, Sue Barker won 11 WTA titles including one Grand Slam singles title at the 1976 French Open Championship. Sue reached a career-high singles ranking of World no. 3. In 1977, when this film was shot, she had in the previous month been knocked out in the semi-finals at the Autralian Open. Later that year she went on to reach the Wimbledon semi-finals unexpectedly losing to Betty Stove.
