On the morning that Andy Murray unsuccessfully contested his second tennis major final in Melbourne in 2010, the Independent on Sunday ran a story on Harold Sergerson Mahony who won the men’s singles title at Wimbledon in 1896.  Although he never won a major title again, he did win the silver medal at the 1900 “Chariots of Fire” Olympics in Paris.

The IoS reported that Mahony was born at 21 Charlotte Square, Edinburgh on 13 February 1867.
