JACK KRAMER and TED SCHROEDER
Seating chart for the 1997 Wimbledon Championships, the 50th anniversary of tennis champ Jack Kramer's men's singles win. Signed by Kramer and Ted Schroeder, who won back-to-back Davis Cups for the U. S. in 1946 and 1947.
Printed document signed "Jack Kramer/Mens Singles Champion 1947" and "Ted Schroeder/Mens Singles Champion 1949", both in black ink. B/w, 1 page, 10x7, printed on cardstock. Seating arrangement for the Royal Box behind Centre Court at the Wimbledon Championships for July 6, 1997. Kramer was there for the 50th anniversary of his 1947 Wimbledon win. Tennis champions Kramer and Schroeder are seated in the sixth row in the box, behind British royalty and other notables. American tennis champion Kramer (1921-2009) won the U.S. National Doubles (with Ted Schroeder) in 1940 and 1941 and won the event again in 1943, 1946 and 1947. He also won the doubles title at Wimbledon in 1947 and led the doubles team that won the Davis Cup in 1946 and 1947. Turning pro in 1947, he won the professional singles title in 1948, the world professional singles title in 1949 and the world professional doubles (with Bobby Riggs) in 1949. Kramer, whose name appeared on some 30 million Wilson tennis racquets, began promoting tournaments in 1952 and retired from tennis in 1954 to concentrate on tourneys. Credited with being an influential force in the game, Kramer not only promoted the game but he also helped young players at clinics, helped coach Davis Cup players and worked tirelessly for open tennis, which would allow professional players to compete against amateurs. He accomplished the latter goal in 1968, when the U. S. National became the U. S. Open. American tennis player TED SCHROEDER (1921-2006), born Frederick Rudolph Schroeder, Jr., first met tennis player Jack Kramer on the court when they were both 13-year-olds in 1935. The two were later members of the American Davis Cup team that won back-to-back victories in 1946 and 1947. Schroeder played on the U. S. Davis Cup team from 1946 to1951, where he compiled an 11-3 record. In addition to his 1949 win at Wimbledon, Schroeder also won the 1942 U.S. National singles title. After retiring from tennis, Schroeder became a commentator on the sport for radio and newspapers, covering the Australian Open and Wimbledon. Kramer's signature touches diagram. Otherwise in fine condition.
