Winnie Shaw was born in Glasgow on 18 January 1947, the second and youngest child of Winifred Mason, also a tennis player, and journalist Angus Shaw.
Shaw had more success as a doubles than a singles player. She never won a major tournament, but she reached the finals of both the ladies doubles and the mixed doubles, and twice made it to the semifinals in the French Open. She played twice in the Australian Open semifinals. She reached the doubles semifinal at Wimbledon in 1972, playing with Joyce Williams, another player from Scotland.
