'We owe a debt of gratitude to them' - The legacy of Ashe and Gibson

February 02, 2021

"For Arthur to come along and do what he did and to really be a humanitarian in how he conducted himself, he had a platform that he used to his advantage to make sure that he got his message across. You look at what Althea did, and the doors that were closed, the ridicule that she experienced and the bias that she experienced, but yet kept her head up high and continue to march forward, it says a lot. We owe a great debt of gratitude to them to make sure that our path and our road is a lot easier to come into the sport and to be able to accomplish the things that we've accomplished." - former USTA president Katrina Adams
