MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) Mervyn Rose, who won two Grand Slam singles titles and two Davis Cups before going into coaching and working with stars including Billie Jean King and Margaret Court, has died. He was 87.

Tennis Australia issued a statement late Monday confirming the death of Rose, a feisty left-hander who won the Australian Open in 1954 and the French Open in 1958 before turning pro.

Rose also won men's doubles titles at the Australian and U.S. Opens and at Wimbledon, reached the semifinals in singles at all four majors and peaked at a career-high ranking of No. 3.
