Vale Ken Fletcher IT WAS a very sad day this week with the passing of one of Australia's greatest tennis talents, Ken Fletcher. Ken has had a long battle with illness and was buried in Brisbane this week.
Ken was renowned for his doubles ability and along with Margaret Court won the mixed doubles grand slam ? the only pair in history to do so. Vale Ken Fletcher.
