Maurice McLoughlin was at the height of his considerable powers for a brief yet brilliant tenure. Called “The California Comet” due to the astonishing speed of his serve and his overpowering style, he captured back-to-back U.S. Championships in 1912 and 1913. He remained a formidable player until 1915, but served in the United States Army and never replicated his old tennis heroics again, virtually vanishing from the upper levels of the game when he was only 25.
