Lesson Description

Career

Stolle is notable for being the only male player in history to have lost his first five Grand Slam singles finals, the fifth of which he led by two sets to love. However, Stolle went on to win two Grand Slam tournament singles titles, the 1965 French Championships and the 1966 US Championships, but failed to win Wimbledon and the Australian Championships, finishing as runner-up in these tournaments and losing to compatriot Roy Emerson on no fewer than five occasions. Lance Tingay of The Daily Telegraph ranked Stolle as World No. 2 in 1966.
