Career[edit] In 1951 and 1952 McGregor and Frank Sedgman
Frank Sedgman
won seven consecutive Grand Slam doubles titles – a feat that is unmatched to date.[2][3] McGregor was also a good singles player. At the Australian championships in 1950, McGregor beat top seed Jaroslav Drobny

in an early round before losing the final against Sedgman.[4] At the 1951 Australian championships, McGregor beat Adrian Quist

and Arthur Larsen before losing the final to Dick Savitt.[5] Savitt also beat him in the Wimbledon final. McGregor won the 1952 Australian championships, beating Savitt and Sedgman in the last two rounds.[6] McGregor was a fine all-round athlete, excelling in cricket, Australian rules football, and tennis. He also played lacrosse.[7] At 6 ft 2 in (1.88 m), he had a powerful serve and overhead. The great tennis player Ellsworth Vines
Ellsworth Vines
said of McGregor: "He was the same height as Pancho Gonzales, faster, moved as well and could jump higher, and once he got to the net he was difficult to pass because of his prehensile reach. The handsome Aussie had the most extraordinary overhead of all time." In his 1979 autobiography Jack Kramer, the long-time tennis promoter and great player himself, who brought McGregor into professional tennis, wrote that "McGregor was one of the weakest players but one of the nicest guys who ever played for me in the pros. As nearly as I could tell, all he wanted to do was save up some money, go back Down Under and play Australian-rules football, which in fact, he played better than he did tennis. And that's what he did." In early January 1953 McGregor and Sedgman signed a contract to join Jack Kramer's professional tour.[8][9] This made them ineligible to compete in the amateur Grand Slam tournaments and Davis Cup. In his 1952–1953 tour against Pancho Segura, McGregor was beaten by 71 matches to 25. In a subsequent 1953–1954 tour against Pancho Gonzales, he was beaten 15 matches to 0.[10][2] After his retirement from tennis at the age of 25 he returned to Australian football
