Biography

A hard fighting serve-and-volleyer, Pat Cash was a member of Australia’s winning Davis Cup team. Four years later he won Wimbledon, beating Ivan Lendl - and taking spectators by surprise when he climbed the seats to embrace his family.

After announcing his retirement. Pat remained involved at the highest level as coach to Mark Philippoussis and Greg Rusedski. He also developed the 'Intonet', a device designed to pick up balls at the net and reduce the risk of back trouble.

Based in London, Pat became a regular member of the BBC commentary team and started his own academy. He also reached the final of the 2005 Delta Tour of Champions, only to be knocked out by John McEnroe.

Outside tennis, Pat’s other love is music. He shared a stage with INXS at the Australian Open and often appears with his own band, The Wild Colonial Boys. He uses his famous chequered headband as a guitar strap.
