"When she walked in the room, you knew she was there and you needed to pay attention. Or, she got your attention. So she had that presence she was also. I would say there was forlorn or disappointed that. In the in the eighties when so many people were becoming touring pros for resorts or Coming to. Be Aficionado, the tennis. So here was somebody that had won the won Milan and you have one woman in the US Open twice what was not being invited to do anything. Additionally. If she was being invited, it was because. Historically. Today. African. American women make less than white women and women in general make less than men. So in the Totem Pole, we're at the bottom. So, in the tennis world, her accomplishments were number one. Nobody was doing anything tennis. Whether, it's from the commentary standpoint or anything had won back to back Wimbledon and the US Open. So if she was sometimes. To do something, they offered her a crump. In her attitude and her conversation with me been I'm a champion. I should get the whole cookie and not settle for crumbs. So it was a bit of conundrum because then that capture out of the game. and. Other people that had not achieved what she had achieved. Get the whole cookie and more. So, there was I don't know if it would be bitterness but remorse or. You know it's it's it's it's a bit pill to swallow I would say. what she was also very giving. Of Advice and. Understood where her place was on the continuum of tennis. and. You know she made I remember we were in Africa at I was playing in a tournament and she was also part of an exhibition that we did. and. So. She was talking about my generation that you know basically the she broke down the door. So that I can get what I was getting and that the next generation after me would get even more. So she sort of understood what she did the heavy lifting. And now everybody else was gonNA reap the benefit. And that's important for people to remember so. In you know the the The harvest the Horn of plenty that thing And how it's really narrow at the end. But then as it goes out, you get the whole bountiful few fruit. So she was at that little in piece. where it all started and each generation because then invaded understand. Okay. So I, got it. Then I gave it to Xena, who gave you the chance to who gave you to Madison who gave it to slow or what? Whatever the continuum anyway. Now it's uncle at Koko. More and more and more. But we all need to remember we couldn't have started without Elsia. And wants uplifting and inspiring and sad. Depressing and eye opening interview with the. With Leslie Allen a wonderful perspective on Alpha Gibson and and what she meant an means to to the world of tennis can. Just a completely. Wonderful. Account of her experiences and an amd contextualising of Gibson in sports history I should say by the way that. Leslie Allen founded and. Instrumental. In her own foundation, it's called win for life pro win for the number four at life pro dot com. She She runs workshops and coaching, and she develops life skills imperative to excel in today's world. Win for life teaches the skills to be bold to be brave and to be empowered. And those. Those words are also wealthy Gibson this I mean I take so many things from. From speaking to Leslie Allen. But I think the one thing that I think anybody can take inspiration from and I'm not wanting to and putting a really positive spin. What is a really desperately tragic sad story But if there's one piece of inspiration than I, feel like. He can take in Gibson Story. It's the despite existing in a world which constantly told her. She was worth less. That she was worth less than her. than her. White competitors that she was worth less than any white folk worth less than male fake. She still believed in her own worth. She knew her own worth. She had this great sense of Own Valley And I can't imagine the strength it took to have that. But I'm bowled over by it. And and Leslie's account some we left left it in pretty uncut because it feels like it covers so much in terms of how is. Life both the happy times, the breakthrough and the sadness of it all. and. It also tells the story of how far things have come and the. That elsia Gibson did in order to create opportunity for all of those that followed and she succeeded fully in that regard because we have the evidence before us today with Venus and Serena Williams and Coco. Golf. And yet at the same time how far things still have to come. And we You know you don't need a tennis podcast to tell you that but. There are examples all around us and and I just. Ungrateful to at least of Woken up to the importance of of listening to the accounts of people that do know what it's like and to read the accounts of people that were there and around the Gibson and can tell her story for us to be able to help to tell it to you yet Leslie Allen, saying that things haven't changed in terms of things that draw fixing probably still going on at the lower levels of tennis out the Gibson's legacy as the USDA president at the time said when when she was honored in that two thousand, seven ceremony is that whenever? A minority touches a tennis racket now that that will start without out the Gibson and You know there were. There were five percents of tennis new come at the time where minorities now thirty percent, and so the has been this arc of progress. But to here, let's talk about how it wasn't just wasn't just click your fingers and suddenly. Suddenly, everything was better with we still learning was still trying to improve and to know what? Let's the Allen Chanda Rubin and all the other players had to go through. But the fact that they were able to go through it because they gibson had had kind of done it I, done it before them and. That is that is a legacy to the sport and that, and that will never you can't take that away and thankfully. I really do want to stress the importance of that statue that is that the Jean King National Tennis Center in front of the Authorized Stadium. That is so important says the Allen said their four starting conversations I'm forgetting people to learn her story and. I was I was reading the king was really pressing to. Was One of the people pressing to get that statue put up..

"They've got out there saying it's been written that I had the greatest serve in women's tennis and I believe it. And she she? She would say with this I mean I can't see a saying it but it's as though she's got a twin cleaner I. She knows she knows she's that good and she is going to bring it and show you that she's that good and. Her good friend Angela Buxton we reported on a on a recent podcast. So sadly passed away. She said that because of healthy is nature she had to apologize for taking the bowling doubles all the time she expected to win. She was in of her own talent and that was very off putting for opponents and obviously she had this this physical stature being nearly six feet tall with this massive sir. And she used to revel in it by the sands of its and what it was capable of doing terrapins. Well Angela Buxton. Was An incredibly significant figure wasn't she in the Gibson's career and I read the a read the bit trees when she she posted very recently and yet I still didn't really appreciate until jolt down into all of his create just how significant Angela Buxton was in the hotel and and. Yeah different. She was to to all there So so what they played the US nationals in in fifty she she became the first black woman to compete first black person to compete at Wimbledon. In fifty one but she doesn't make that that Grand Slam breakthrough and she's making pretty much no money from the sport she's she's barely making ends meet. And she's she's considering quitting the game. In, her mid to late twenties and actually she was sent to Asia by the State Department on a sort of proper cultural propaganda tool. Organized by the State Department across. Asia with the a pretty well-known. Mera Blonde American tennis player Will Carol Find Girls and there were if you British players sense as well sort of joint propaganda. I'm one of those. Was Angela Buxton and they formed this instant friendship which is so wonderful and hearing hearing Angela talk about how how, why she so instantly responded to wealthy Gibson was amazing. It's such a desperate shame that we we get this in in. Angela. Buxton words now, but she was. Daughter to Jewish parents who were evacuated during the war. And they were they were actually evacuated to South Africa and she was she's very little Angela Buxton and she remembers forming a friendship. She's to play in the street with a local black go and of course you know as A. As a young child she she didn't think anything and actually the neighbors advised her parents that it wasn't advisable. For Angela to be playing with a black child and they were, they were guests at the South African government and they didn't want to anger and if the authorities so angela was told, you can't play with her anymore and it was obviously something that really stuck with her being Jewish. During that time joy anytime. But particularly during that time, she had an appreciation of persecution and being a minority in facing obstacles and she said off to that it was the next black person she spoke to him. And they struck up listens to friendship and they they agreed to play doubles together a at at the French Open and actually doubles title with the Angela. Buxton was. Was a precursor to winning the single starts who she wanted to double title Wimbledon in fifty six and and she wasn't 'til fifty seven and then again in fifty eight that she. She won the singles titles in and it really helped her hone her game I think playing. Side Angela Angela Buxton. I think Angela Buxton said they didn't really use to talk about the discrimination they face. They just partnered up because they were both isolated themselves on the tool and nothing out there Gibson said, no one ever asked to play doubles with me before and the bucks was the first one to do that and yeah, they won Wimbledon together and give some three Wimbledon doubles titles in a row and the first thing with with Angela Buxton. Those those great quotes here. From Angela Buxton that said AL is objective wasn't equal rights. It was to beat every bloody person. She could hands off so that she could show that she was the Queen Bee. I loved the way. Angeles speaks in podcast mentioned to you. You can hear the affection that she had for Gibson and the understanding is well she. She knew how good she was. She knew how good Al Thea knew she was and there was no never come across his any jealousy or or any disapproval it was just it was amusement and it was appreciation. Such an interesting quote that because out the Alpha herself said, I didn't I didn't beat I didn't consciously beat the drum for any special close not even the cause if the Negro in the United States I believe that our best chance to advise advance is to prove ourselves is individuals. And that kind of a different way of expressing what what Angela Buxton was saying about right. She was. She was doing the talking with Iraq it. And Angela Buxton needs to to have her to stay during during Wimbledon and she tells the story in the documentary about how her neighbors. raised. Eyebrows about in some of them would would make comments and. I didn't give didn't give to hoops and she said, she said I'll thea barely seemed to notice it was her that was was noticing it all the time. But I guess was so used to that. That would. Barely raise an eyebrow for her at that stage. So in fifty six. Alpha. Wins her first Grand Slam title. That's it. That's the French Open. And she also won the Wimbledon doubles title alongside. Angela, Buxton that year but it's in nineteen, fifty seven when she she becomes the first black person to win a Wimbledon title. That she is embraced by the tennis world will be briefly she was embraced wasn't she? She wins that Wimbledon title she backs it up by winning the US Open title on home soil, and then she defends those crowns the next year and she was handed that Wimbledon title in fifty seven by the Queen of England Those images and thank goodness there is footage of that available. That footage is extraordinary. Isn't it really extraordinary an also her words in her autobiography about that moments shaking hands with the queen of England was a long way from being forced to sit in the colored section of the bus going into downtown Wilmington North Carolina. It's It's just an incredible moments in an end points in that regard of her journey of success..

"Caught off guard by in a press conference you know they're expecting questions about forehands and backhands matches, and that kind of thing, and you do see it sometimes when they get asked a question on a topic, not expecting that they can kind of just freeze and shut down a little bit and I'm sure I'm sure he probably did know who gives Gibson walls but he didn't feel able to talk about it, and that is I think an illustration of the fact that has as you've been saying. historisches hasn't been told enough so that it's kind of right there in the forefront of their mind in a way that it should be. So he was Alpha Gibson You've done some some extraordinary research that that we've all read. I've watched. A film American mostow theory of the last couple of days David been listening to some other rival podcast, which we will accept in the name of research. But Black Mark Against Your name David. who was healthy Gibson most she was she was born in South Carolina in one, thousand, nine, hundred, twenty, seven. But she she later moved to New York with her family during the Great Depression. To I think the family was sort of. Seeking economic benefits moving to to New York and sheep she. McCain. A product of the the streets of Harlem. She was in her own words a street kids she she dropped out of schools yet. She ended up completing high school I think in her early twenties she started high school, the age of eighteen 'cause she kind of just skipped it. Throughout her teenage years and she started playing paddle tennis on the streets of Harlem. That's how she she got into tennis. She was not very sporty played played all sorts of different sports. Thinks. She had a a tough and complicated relationship with her father. He opened the east to tell her. I learned from the the film that. He wanted to son and he had wished that she were boy and he was just GonNa treat you as a boy given that she wasn't one. And East, two stories of him taking up to the roof of their apartment and. Boxing with a genuine knee fist vising with her to try and as he put, it toughened her up. And it's funny. There are a lot of, as you hear people start to talk about out there is we will do what we're hearing Moose of significant people they like into her to a to a boxer. And those sort of street fighting qualities coming out. Coming out. In tennis. Yeah and that's something that she was well aware of but it's I suppose that's not that wasn't an uncommon story for people if the agent at that time, but it's a pretty extraordinary to come from a family of sharecroppers in in South Carolina job considered just just one step away from slavery really to, and there's there's a whole lot of story in between will come on bit to come from that sipping professional tennis player. Just alone is pretty extraordinary and I think it's important to mention here that the USDA at the time was the US l.. Ta and it was A. It was an all white organization. Black people were not allowed to play in US LTA tournaments and A. A rival Tennis Association the American Tennis Association the ATA was formed in Nineteen sixteen with the mission really of promoting tennis among black people and the once she picked up the game was playing on that tool and Dominating I think she ended up winning the national eighty-eight titled Ten. Times. But, it was wall she was playing on that that she was. that. She was spotted by Huber Eaten and Robert. Johnson Dr Johnson as as he's known and they realized that they were watching the Gibson who was a woman of. Great scale and they believe someone that could kind of transform the sport that I love, which was tennis and. Then, mission was to kind of find a young black player who was able to integrate the white world of tennis and they knew that it had to be a good player because they knew that that was the only sort of plan that would be accepted in that world they had to prove themselves. With a talent and with their skill and they chose. Gibson they they realized potential and keep some went to live with Eaton? And his wife during school year practicing on his core attending high school and then, and then Gibson with spend the summer traveling around this eighty-eight tennis circuit with Dr Johnson and. Steadily, Gibson's game improve and she reached the point nine, hundred fifty where she was really good enough to be playing on the main US Outta or rather than just the ATA tool. But there was there was still a barrier that had to be broken down. As, funny. One of the things that struck me about that, her involvement with the a which of course was for exclusively black tennis players was that she was an outlier even within the black tennis world because An and. This is something that I got from the. Documentary. The E, there was a certain class snobbery in the it was for the black bourgeoisie was for the Black Intelligencia and she was none of those things. So not only was she and obsolete I. Just by virtue of being a black person, she was also an outlier within the the. Should have been her her quarter of the sport. It wasn't she was. She was an outside on on every front and I dating it's possible not to. Understate. The significance of Dr Johnson in her development because he's somebody that that comes up repeatedly in her story he was also. Important to author Ashen and Leslie Allen who will will will hear from an yeah. He was overseeing an extremely significant person but as you say Matt. Until nineteen fifty, there was this huge obstacle a huge wool in the way of her. Properly, becoming a will not even a professional tennis play just competing in tennis at the highest level and it took a white woman. To change that it took alice marble, who was she the world number one at the time. I think she was the American number one I'm not sure world number one was a thing. That she was the top ranked American tennis player. She had status in cachet within the sport. Richard Evans the. The tennis journeys we'll be hearing from a bit later. Told me a story which sounds like. It will need its whole own podcast by alice marble being some sort of spy jury, second? World. War. Possible tennis relived episode on that in the future. But Alice Marble wrote a letter in American tennis American Lawn Tennis magazine. That said a portion of it said if tennis is a game for Ladies and gentlemen, it's time we acted a little more gentle people and less like sanctimonious hypocrites. If Alpha Gibson represents a challenge to the present Corp of women players, it's only fair that they should meet that challenge and one month. Later out the Gibson was admitted to the US National Tennis Championships Forest Hills, what the tournament that would later become the US Open when tennis became professional. And she became the first ever black player to compete and she went on to compete at Wimbledon. The next year. What strikes me through all of that storytelling and reading upon it is is that Combination of the activism of Alice marble the intervention. that. She. Does she has there in order to to force hands, but also the need for this this diplomacy from from out the Gibson and from Mr Johnson and the people that are trying to prepare and enable her to to infiltrate this. This sport that just doesn't allow black people to play it and. If they only were getting full on head-on and trying to break the wolves down with with. Fury in activism, it wasn't going to work. It has to be married with with the diplomacy in order to be accepted at the same time, and that's one of the most fascinating elements to me of both out there Gibson Anna thrashes story that there wasn't a single way in order to achieve the goal that eventually had in order to break into the sport and and to be accepted and Tim, and this was a moment showing. Does that quote isn't there that Dr Johnson was preparing for a world that didn't want us And I and I think there's something that we can. We can all learn from Alice Mobile's intervention that. Black people shouldn't have to dismantle the problem that they didn't create. And I think white people can and must help and marble is a is is an example of that and together they were stronger.

An extraordinary learning experience for us to to get to know these t plays an the significance in tennis history say thank you David for your enthusiasm. For tennis relived. Point Yeah it's very different what we're doing today and what we're doing with the Arthur Ashe podcast as well. When we were doing the Roland Garros relived Wimbledon the Olympics, they were all about events or matches or moments in time specific moments in time when we came up to realizing that the US Open for stop was going to happen and we really don't have two weeks worth of shows to fill much as I'd love to come up with twenty wonderful matches and memories which no doubt we will get to in the. List of Twelve Pete Sampras much is that he submitted for the short lift. US Open relived and fifteen Jimmy Connors matches. Including all seven from all from. Sorry. All five from nine hundred, ninety one. But When we came to to look at this and we started to try to think well, what what should we do I personally suddenly realize the the gaping chasm mind knowledge in my reading of the Games history and I think particularly Alpha Gibson I feel ashamed not to know what I now know and what we want to do with this show. Is Tell, the stories that we've discovered and to properly tell the history as best as we can. I. Think we all knew that line first black woman to play the US Open and win Grand Slam titles but I'd never properly engaged with that line or really understood what that actually. Meant or considered what she actually had to overcome to become that because tennis was this elitist sport at a racially segregated time in America. So it's an extraordinary thing that tennis was used as AVIK BY A. Gibson and now thrash. To advance the black race and I'd never really. Never really thought about that before how how, what, a, what a strength of character and what a special talent it took to be able to achieve as a black person in in that white world and it's just been. Just been happening really to have read and sort of spent time. In their lives over the last few over the last few days and weeks doing this research and and it felt very necessary and timely as well. Absolutely it is timely. It feels like the right. Right moment to be doing this I mean there's never it's never been a wrong moment to do it and we. Probably, should have done it sooner but this is a very important moment. In the civil rights movement in the black lives matter movement and two. Quite Billie Jean King via Mary Carillo you have to know your history or your destined to repeat it. So this is an attempt by us to get to know. The sports, really integral part of the sports history and yet just to. Reemphasize what David was saying. They're shame shame. Not previously having enough of an appreciation of the Gibson in her significance my second USA. Even as a fan was in two thousand seven. Previously been in two thousand and four times with my dad's just little jolie to new. York. And the opening ceremony that year. On it out the Gibson because it was the fiftieth anniversary of her first title at the US Open. She went back to back titles fifty seven and fifty eight and aretha Franklin song at that opening ceremony she she sung respect. And of course, I knew ether frankly. Very very excited to to see her and to sing along to respect and try and get my face on the jumbotron. But I had no idea twenty year old me twenty, one year old me I didn't know about the IT Gibson was and Ko is only twenty one but I had been a tennis fan for a long time and I'm not sure I ever heard her name before or if I had. Not registered it and not thought to myself you should. You should find out who that person is and what the significance is. Say I respectively very ashamed about that, but I did enjoy a Retha. And you weren't alone not knowing who out there Gibson was do we want to bring up the federal quote not to throw him under the bus but what we ourselves under the bus I? Federal join us the IT's representative of the wider. Misunderstanding or lack of knowledge of the tennis world of of certainly my generation and and yours and Roger Federer's parts of those straddles. The fact that he did not really know who she was when he was asked about a legacy. He said she was before my time. What's the exact quote? I, think you said you're putting me on the spot. I don't know who that is. I think is the quote because it was before my time and look he.
