Annabel Croft, 54, sparks frenzy amongst Wimbledon 2021 fans as she flaunts ageless beauty
Former tennis player Annabel Croft appeared alongside Wimbledon legend Sue Barker today, as she shared her thoughts on this year’s tournament. However, while offering her expert opinion, she sent social media wild.
Annabel, 54, competed in Wimbledon in 1984, lifting the trophy following success at the women’s tournament.
She later went on to reach the third round of the four grand slams in the same year, before going on to compete in the US Open just two years later.
However, Annabel, who was amongst the world’s top 25 tennis players, retired from the sport aged just 21.
The Kent-born sporting personality spoke of her retirement in 2011, claiming it was due to the “stressful nature of the tour”.

While Annabel may have been speechless after witnessing Coco Gauff smash one of the world’s greatest at a recent match, she herself left fans at home collecting their jaws from the floor after she appeared on the screen.
“Annabel Croft is still elite,” tweeted one social media user.
While a second added: “Dear Annabelle, please can we have your beauty secrets… absolutely flawless #AnnabelleCroft #Wimbedon.”
“#Annabellecroft looks amazing. #Wimbledon2021,” tweeted a third.
After retiring from the sport in 1988, the mum-of-three turned her hand to television work, presenting Channel 4’s Treasure Hunt.
Maintaining a love for the sport, she has remained a key figure at Wimbledon and is often involved in coverage of the Championship with the likes of BBC and BBC Radio 5 Live.
Today, Annabel sat alongside Sue Barker, speaking about 17-year-old Coco, who had previously thrashed Venus Williams aged just 15 at the 2019 Wimbledon Championships.
Annabel commented, saying that Coco’s performance was “extraordinary” for somebody of such a young age.
