Malcolm Chace gave up the game of tennis at the age of 21. Nevertheless, he established a record of distinction as an amateur tennis player. An 1896 graduate of Yale University, Chace ranked as high as No. 3 among Americans in 1895 and achieved his highest honor when he won the U.S. National Doubles Championships with Bob Wrenn in 1895. Playing for two different universities (Yale and Brown), he set a record by taking the U.S. Intercollegiate Singles and Doubles for three consecutive years from 1893-95.
