Evonne Fay Goolagong Cawley, AO, MBE (born July 31, 1951, in Griffith, New South Wales, Australia) was one of the world's leading women's tennis players in the 1970s and early-1980s, winning seven Grand Slam singles titles (four Australian Open, two Wimbledon and one French Open) and six Grand Slam doubles titles.
Following her marriage to Roger Cawley in 1975, Goolagong settled in the United States (in Naples, Florida).
Since 2000, Goolagong Cawley has made an increasing commitment to Australian women's tennis, which has fallen on hard times in terms of the glamour international events, and was appointed captain of the Australian Fed Cup team in 2002.
