i doubt it... i don't think there were any black people in tennis then.TennisPower said:Yes, in the course of some research, I stumbled upon a certain Richard Williams who ... won the US Open Singles in 1914 and 1916. Does anybody have any info on this Slam winner? Would he by any chance have any relation with the Williams sisters' dad?
you're right. tennis has an extremely racist history and any Black/minority players would have been shut out of the sport back then regardless of how talented they were. this is one reason why so many people have a problem with two Black sisters dominating the sport at this point in history. we've come a long way baby.King Lindsay said:i doubt it... i don't think there were any black people in tennis then.
