Thursday Thinking by YoTrip for July 5, 2012-Arthur Ashe-A Champion Game-Changer (Vol.7,Iss.1)


A Historic Game-changer: Arthur Ashe    10. Arthur Ashe upsets Jimmy Connors in the finals (1975)AP

On July 5, 1975, Arthur Ashe became the first black man to win Wimbledon, defeating Jimmy Connors in a shocking upset.

Ashe accomplished a great many firsts in his tennis career. He was the first African-American to win the National Junior Indoor tennis title and the first to be selected to the United States Davis Cup team. In 1968, he became the first black man to win the United States Open.

In 1975, the 31-year-old entered Wimbledon as the No. 6 seed. Connors was the heavy favorite, having destroyed his opponents in his march toward the title match. http://nyti.ms/Nr520w
