International Tennis Hall of Fame Inducts New Members


Tennis stars Jim Courier, Jana Novotna, Yannick Noah and former men's tennis tour head Butch Buchholz have been inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame in Newport, Rhode Island.

Courier won both the Australian and French Opens twice and was a member of six U.S. Davis Cup teams. He helped the United States win the Davis Cup in 1992 and 1995. He was also ranked number one in the world at the end of 1992.

Novotna was the 1998 Wimbledon singles champion and won four doubles titles at the All England Club. The Czech player took the U.S. Open and French Open doubles crowns three times each and won two doubles championships at the Australian Open.

Noah was the first Frenchman in 37 years to win the French Open when he captured the men's title at Roland Garros in 1983.

Buchholz was the commissioner of World Team Tennis from 1976 to 1978 and was the Executive Director of the Association of Tennis Professionals from 1981 to 1982.
