"I was a tomboy, a word you don't hear anymore, thank heavens," she said. "If you play people who are better than you then you are going to get better."That persistence, [brother] Fred said, left a lasting impression on those who knew Peachy."She was born with clubbed feet and didn't walk until she was 4 or 5 years old," he said. "She had to wear braces and had to have a heel cut off. But at 6 or 7 years old, here she is playing tennis and she's just a natural."I was just average. She went on and played in the finals of the 15s and 18s in nationals and, if you can believe this, she was a better basketball player than tennis player."
