Despite having her career disrupted by the Second World War, Nancy Wynne Bolton earned the right to be classified as one of the greatest Australian women ever to play the game. An enduring figure in her nation, she was a force from the middle of the 1930s until the early 1950s. Tall and powerful, determined and reliable, she fashioned victories through the force of her will, the assertiveness of her playing style, and unfailingly sound match-playing instincts.
