The tennis star writes an inspirational statement entitled, "Dare to Dream."
Autograph statement signed: "Rosie", 1 page, 7½x4½. No place, no date. In full: "'Dare to Dream' If you have ambition chances are that you will achieve & aspire. Not all will be the greatest but if you at least put yourself on the line & try to achieve that is worth the success or failure--No failure in trying!!" Tennis was still a game dominated by men and women from wealthy backgrounds when Rosemary Casals (b. 1948), from a poor, Salvadoran immigrant family, emerged as a star in the 1960s. She was particularly dominant in doubles tennis, winning five Wimbledon championships (with Billy Jean King) between 1967 and 1973, and four US open doubles titles (with 4 different partners). She also did much to change the game: wearing bold colors instead of the traditional whites on the court, urging spectators to cheer loudly instead of just politely clapping, and - more importantly, working to boost tournament prizes for women and opening previously amateur tourneys (including Wimbledon) to professionals. She entered the International Tennis Hall of Fame in 1985. Creased. Fine condition
