From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Allan Stone (born 14 October 1945 in Launceston, Australia) played amateur and professional tennis in the 1960s and 1970s. He was ranked as high as World No. 38 in singles on the ATP Rankings (achieving that ranking on 8 April 1975), although Stone played for many years before the ATP Rankings were instituted.

Stone found the majority of his success on the doubles court. He won 11 doubles titles during his career, including the Australian Open in 1977 and the Australian Championships (the predecessor to the Australian Open) in 1968. In singles, he reached four finals, including Cincinnati.

He moved to Victoria and played amateur tennis for the Warburton Tennis Club where he was coached by Mary Morton.
