Sandra Reynolds Price (née Reynolds; born 4 March 1939) is a former tennis player from South Africa who won four Grand Slam women's doubles championships and one Grand Slam mixed doubles championship. Her best Grand Slam singles result was reaching the 1960 Wimbledon final, losing to Maria Bueno 8–6, 6–0. Reynolds is the only female player from South Africa to have reached the Wimbledon singles final, and she is one of three to have reached a singles final in a Grand Slam. In 1961, she was seeded no. 1 for the Wimbledon Ladies Singles Championship, making her the only South African player (man or woman) ever to be seeded first in a Grand Slam singles event. She was the runner-up at the 1959 U.S. Women's Clay Court Championships, losing to Sally Moore in the final. Price won the German Championships in 1960, 1961, and 1962. She was the runner-up at the 1959 Italian Championships, having defeated Bueno in a semifinal, then losing to Christine Truman in the final.

According to Lance Tingay of the Daily Telegraph and the Daily Mail, Price was ranked in the world top 10 from 1959 through 1962, reaching a career high of world no. 3 in 1960.[1]

Price teamed with fellow South African Renée Schuurman to win all four of her Grand Slam women's doubles titles. They won the Australian Championships in 1959 and the French Championships in 1959, 1961, and 1962. In addition, they were the runners-up at Wimbledon in 1960 and 1962. Price also teamed with Bob Mark to win the mixed doubles title at the 1959 Australian Championships, defeating Schuurman and Rod Laver in the final in three sets.

On 28 October 1961 she married Lowell Price, a horse breeder, in Bloemfontein and they have one daughter.[2][3]
