Charlie Pasarell
Charlie Pasarell Amongst the players who launched their career prior to the Open Era, Charlie Pasarell was a big-serving, stylish player with textbook motion and delivery. He slugged it out against the game’s finest, including Dennis Ralston, Arthur Ashe, Stan Smith, Roy Emerson, Tony Roche, and Pancho Gonzales. While perhaps not the most well-known in that group of luminaries, Pasarell was a sensational junior player, the champion of his native Puerto R...

Cliff Drysdale
Cliff Drysdale Whenever the name Cliff Drysdale is mentioned, the word “voice” immediately comes to mind. Drysdale has been the “voice” of tennis for more than 30 years at ESPN. As the President of the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) from 1972-74, he “voiced his discontent” with how touring pros were being treated by the International Tennis Federation, which led to the 1973 Wimbledon boycott. As a tennis...
Arthur Ashe
Arthur Ashe In 1968, the first year amateurs and professionals could compete against each other in major events, the US Open was won by Arthur Ashe, a man who enjoyed a storied career between the lines and a dignified life as an ambassador of equality and goodwill; a life that tragically ended in 1993 after he contracted HIV from a blood transfusion following heart bypass surgery. Younger generations of tennis fans may only recognize Ashe’s name as the ...
Jack Kramer
Jack Kramer Jack Kramer doesn’t fit neatly into one singular tennis category. His impact on the game as a player, promoter, and analyst, as well as the name that adorned one of the greatest selling racquets in history places him in the “rarified” tennis category. You’d be hard pressed to find anyone – male or female – who has had a greater impact on tennis than Jack Kramer. At 6-foot-2, Kramer ushered in an era of a poundin...

Don Budge
Don Budge In 1938, John Donald Budge became the first player in history to accomplish what had previously been considered the unattainable: he won the singles championships at Australia, France, Wimbledon, and the United States, completing the first ever Grand Slam. With those victories came a rarified place among the tennis elite. While the great Bill Tilden won more major titles than Budge – 18 to 14 – the 6-foot-1, 160 pound redhead is wide...
