Debbie Freeman (born 5 June 1962) is an Australian former tennis player who won Junior Wimbledon in 1980. In 1978, Freeman won the Australian Open Girls' Doubles title with Kathy Mantle.[1] In 1980, Freeman became the first Australian to win Girls' Singles title at Wimbledon.[2][3] At the moment she is the only Australian to win the Junior Girls Wimbledon title. Freeman received a telegram from the Prime Minister of Australia, Malcolm Fraser, congratulating her on her win. Freeman however failed to capitalise on her Junior titles, losing first-round matches at the US Open, Wimbledon and the French Open in the following year. She retired from professional tennis soon after.[4] References[edit]
