Players

James Blake

James Blake

James Blake began playing tennis as a member of the Harlem Junior Tennis Program at age 5. As a child, he had to overcome severe scoliosis which forced him to wear a back brace 18 hours a day. Blake, best known for his speed and powerful forehand, reached 3 Grand Slam quarterfinals and, in 2006, became the first African-American player since Arthur Ashe to reach the Top 10 in the ATP Rankings.

Jim Courier

Jim Courier

In the early 90s he dominated the men’s professional tennis circuit with a game he fashioned out of grit, determination and a punishing insideout forehand. He was the first in his class – which included Pete Sampras and Andre Agassi – to hold the No. 1 world ranking. In 2005, Jim was elected for induction into the International Tennis Hall of Fame.

John McEnroe
