Biography | show moreshow less
Arthur Ashe (1943-1993) was the first Black American player named to the U.S. Davis Cup team (1963-1970, 1975-1976, 1978). Still an amateur, he won the 1968 U.S. Open. Ashe also won the 1970 Australian Open and defeated Jimmy Connors to win the 1975 Wimbledon singles title. In 1988, tests showed that Ashe had HIV, probably from a blood transfusion during his 1983 bypass surgery. He died of AIDS-related pneumonia in 1993 at the age of 49. In 1996, Richmond, Virginia, the city that banned young Arthur Ashe from its whites-only tennis courts, dedicated a 12-foot bronze statue on Monument Avenue to the late athlete. The U.S. Open is now played at Arthur Ashe Stadium in New York City.
