Biography

American tennis player and champion of the Wimbledon Men's Singles in 1939. In 1946 he established himself as the world's top tennis player. Perhaps he will always be remembered as much for his championships as for his loss to women's champion Billie Jean King in the famous Battle of the Sexes tournament on September 20, 1973 in the Houston (TX) Astrodome when he was 55. He died of prostate cancer on October 25, 1995 in San Diego, CA.
