He also played very successfully with Fred Stolle before he partnered Crew.
Checking his Wikipedia, he also partnered Billie Jean in the mixed doubles, winning them at the FO in 1970.  It seems these allegations have been rumbling around in the US since early 2011 and that, following investigations, his name was removed from the IHF in November 2012, although it was another two years before he was actually charged with rape.  He was investigated by the tennis authorities in 1992 but no further action was taken - something which sounds horribly familiar in these days when allegations of sexual abuse of children seem to arise every other week.

Anyone else pick up on this? Three Wimbledon titles in one day? Serena Williams eat your heart out!

I do recall hearing about her, but I certainly didn't know that fact.  Thanks Fiverings.

Funny story, but not for the guy involved.

Hamad Abbas Janahi, the son of a billionaire in Dubai was caught doping and so has been suspended for 2 years. He was double bagelled in 33 minutes by James Ward in the qualifying stages of the Dubai tournament this year.

In truth, it is no real loss, because the guy can't even play tennis. As seen here...

@DDFTennis @JamesWardtennis Nice to give a WC to the son of local billionaire rather than a real tennis player who could use the points

  Reminiscent of the  Quatari wildcard Andy bagel led in Doha last year. I remember he said he was a bit embarrassed by having to play a guy who shouldn't have been there. His ranking was right off the scale as I recall, 2000+.  Perhaps he was a friend of Sepp Blatter.

That was Andy's first (competitive) match back after his surgery too. Couldn't have asked for an easier match really.

Looks like the WTF will be staying at the O2 until 2018.

Not surprised really, Dimitrov hasn't been playing too well of late and grass is Muller's best surface.
