Lottie Dod


Charlotte "Lottie" Dod (24 September 187127 June 1960) was a British athlete best known as a tennis player. She won the Wimbledon Championships five times, the first when she was only fifteen, in the summer of 1887. She remains the youngest player to win the women's singles tournament, though Martina Hingis was three days younger when she won the women's doubles title in 1997.

In addition to tennis, Dod competed in many other sports, including golf, field hockey, and archery. In addition to other successes, she won the British amateur golf championships, played for the British national field hockey team, and won a silver medal at the 1908 Summer Olympics in archery. The Guinness Book of Records has named her as the most versatile female athlete of all time, together with track and field athlete and fellow golf player Babe Zaharias.
