Holding the record for most tournament appearances at Wimbledon with 30 between 1888 and 1922, Arthur Gore won that cherished title three times between 1901 and 1909. Wiry, wily, consistent and durable, Gore was 41 years and 182 days old when he won the last of those championships, becoming the oldest ever to capture the singles title on the British grass. Gore played Davis Cup for Great Britain in its inaugural year of 1900 and again in 1907, and he won the gold medal in both singles and doubles at the 1908 Olympics held in London.
