When historians reflect on the greatest Australian doubles players of all time, the name Adrian Quist invariably is included in the conversation. Quist won ten consecutive Australian Championships in doubles and was a standout performer in that capacity. His return from the advantage court was outstanding, and he had as deep a command of the doubles craft as anyone who has ever played the game. Quist held the distinction of being the only man to win Grand Slam championships before and after World War II.
