Ray Moore (21) Coca Cola salesman from South Africa & Wimbledon Quarter Finalist 1968, astounded teenis officials at Wimbledon when he said he “would rather serve up songs than aces”.
As a consequence, Ray was invited to join The Bee Gees in a London recording studio 3rd July 1968.
Rays’ record at Wimbledon: known to his friends as ‘Hippy’ because of his long hair, casual attire and Bohemian life-style, Ray beat No. 3 seed Gimeno in the third round & then went on to beat American, Tom Edlefsen, to enter the quarter finals. There he lost to the American amateur Clark Graebner who had already eliminated Stolle, the 11th seed.
