Lorne Main has been playing tennis for more than six and a half decades.

After competing in 11 Grand Slams, and winning the 1954 Monte Carlo Open as an unseeded player, Main was forced to give up tennis – there was no prize money and he had a family to look after.

Returning to the game in the 1980s, Main rediscovered his passion for tennis, becoming arguably the most successful senior tennis player in history.
