From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Eric William Sturgess (born May 10, 1920 in Johannesburg, South Africa - died 14 January 2004) was a South African male tennis player. He reached the singles final of a Grand Slam tournament three times but never won.

He reached the singles final of the 1947 and 1951 French Championships but lost to Hungarian József Asbóth (6–8, 5–7, 4–6) the first final and to Jaroslav Drobný the second (6–3, 6–3, 6–3) (in 1947 he won the doubles competition with countryman Eustace Fannin).

By the end of his career Sturgess had reached nine Grand Slam finals (three in singles, and six in doubles). He won three titles (the 1947 French Championships doubles title, and the 1949 and 1950 Wimbledon Mixed doubles title).
