Obverse depicts a shield with the WCT logo: a pair of globes resting atop a tennis racket beneath a string of seven small stars.

Arcing over the top is, ''WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP OF TENNIS''. The WCT trophy cup is the focal point of the reverse, with ''1971'' and ''FINALIST'' appearing on scrolls to the top and bottom respectively.

Housed beautifully in its original red hinged case with cream satin lining, measuring 5.25'' square and with his name printed in gilt lettering on the lid. Medal is in near fine condition.
