Althea Gibson's Wimbledon Win

calcJul 06, 2022

OATI is having its own microgrid match to celebrate the anniversary of Althea Gibson’s historic Wimbledon win. Gibson became the first Black player to win the tournament on this day in 1957. She won five singles and six doubles Grand Slam titles during her career, and is often compared to Jackie Robinson for her breakthrough of color barriers in professional tennis.
