Tennis Player
    (August 27, 1954- )
    Born in Leigh-on-Sea, Essex, England, United Kingdom
    Australian Open runner-up (1977)
    Won three Grand Slam mixed doubles titles (1982-83)
    Highest ranking was #21 (1978)
    Captain of the British Davis Cup team (2006- )
    Tennis commentator for the BBC
    Married Chris Evert (1979-87)
    He was better known as the Lloyd in Chris Evert-Lloyd than for his own career.
    He had a reputation for succumbing to pressure, particularly at Wimbledon, where he never got past the third round.
    He admitted, 'I won a couple of doubles and that was great, but in the singles I never played to my potential.'
    He was the first male British player of the Open era to reach the finals of a Grand Slam event.
    He said, 'When you marry someone who is more successful than you it can be difficult for the male ego, but if you can't accept it, you shouldn't get married. A lot has been written about it, but it wasn't a problem with me.'
    After his divorce from Evert, he turned down lucrative offers from the British tabloids to dish dirt on his ex-wife.
