Great Black Players of the Past – Arthur Ashe

Black History Month remembers Great Players of the Past – Arthur Ashe.

Ashe was a World #1 player and had won 3 Grand Slam titles, enshrining his place in history as one of America’s best tennis players.

At 6 ft 1 in, and 160 lbs, Ashe was a dominating personality both on and off the tennis court.

Born in Richmond, Virgina, he was the first Black player to be selected for the United States Davis Cup Team. In 1968 he became the first black player to win the United States Amateur Championships. He was also inducted into the Tennis Hall of Fame in 1985.

One of his most memorable wins was in 1975, when Ashe won Wimbledon, defeating Jimmy Connors in the final.

Ashe was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1993, mostly for his work in ending apartheid in South Africa.

Ashe had a career record of 818-260 and held 35 Tennis Titles, including winning the Australian, US Open, and Wimbledon.

Arthur Ashe died prematurely in 1993 due to an HIV infection contracted from a blood transfusion while undergoing heart surgery.

Ashe is remembered as the most influential black tennis player of the modern era.
