Arthur Ashe


“The ideal attitude is to be physically losse and mental tight ” Arthur Ashe

Arthur Ashe died 30 years ago today.  Many people only know of him because of Arthur Ashe Kids Day or the Arthur Ashe statue at the National Tennis Center.  This web site gives us the facts about his life and what he stood for.  Although he became #1 in the world in tennis, there was always more to Arthur Ashe than winning tennis tournaments (which he did 34 times in his career).  There was so much more to Ashe than his tennis that Sports Illustrated named him Sportsman of the Year 13 years after he retired from tennis.  Arthur will be forever connected to our area.  He spearheaded the founding of 15-LOVE.  Click on the link below to find out more about this great ambassador for our sport and explore the sites many pages.

A few more Quotes from Arthur Ashe:

“Drummed into me, above all, by my dad, by the whole family, was that without your good name, you would be nothing.”

“One important key to success is self-confidence. An important key to self-confidence is preparation.”
