Biography

Angel Roldán competed in épée both individually and with the Mexican team at the 1960 Roma Olympics, but fencing was not his primary sport. He started as a tennis player, and played Davis Cup for Mexico in 1934, playing against the United States in an early round tie, although he lost his only match against Frank Shields. His tennis career lasted from the 1930s until at least the early 1960s, competing multiple times in the Mexican Championships, the Mexican International, and in Mexico and Texas, the Pan American Championships.

Roldán was a surgeon by profession. His daughter, [Pilar Roldán], also became a good tennis player but switched her primary sport to fencing in which she competed at three Olympics. When Pilar started fencing, Angel also took up the sport to help her and eventually became one of the top Mexican fencers, leading to his Olympic participation. Another daughter, [Lourdes Roldán], also competed in fencing at the 1968 Olympics.
