Dorothy “Dodo” Bundy Cheney made a habit of winning big tennis matches, and it has lasted for a lifetime. The daughter of former Wimbledon and U.S. Champion May Sutton Bundy, Dodo became the first American woman to capture the Australian Championships in 1938. By the 1950s, she had moved seamlessly into senior tennis and by the end of 2002-when she won the USTA National Grass court Super-Senior Mother-Daughter Championships held at the International Tennis Hall of Fame-she had amassed an astonishing total of 300 national titles.
