The defining moment for John Doeg was clearly his showing at the 1930 U.S. Championships. Exploiting his big, left-handed serve on the grass at Forest Hills, he struck down “Big Bill” Tilden in the semifinal of his nation’s championships and put a remarkable capstone on his career by eclipsing Frank Shields in the championship match. A methodical attacking player, Doeg played Davis Cup for the United States and reached the Wimbledon final in doubles with George Lott in 1930.
