Tony Trabert, tennis player who won Wimbledon and the US and French Opens – obituary

Tony Trabert, who has died aged 90, was a charismatic American tennis star who won 10 major singles and doubles crowns in the 1950s before becoming a respected Davis Cup captain and commentator; only a defeat to Ken Rosewall in the semi-finals of the Australian Championships denied him the Grand Slam in 1955, when he won the French, Wimbledon and US Championships and was ranked the world’s top amateur.
