                              10. Evonne Goolagong Cawley

                              She was one of the world's leading players in the 1970s and early 1980s, when she won 14 Grand Slam titles.
                              Although Aboriginal people faced widespread discrimination in rural Australia at this time, Goolagong was able to play tennis in Barellan from childhood.
