Posted to the right is a magazine article about Don Budge (1915 2000), an American tennis champ active in the late 1930s who was ranked the World's Number 1 player for five years, first as an amateur player and then as a pro. This article appeared in print in 1939, when the player's best days were behind him.

"Kids in California, in some parts of which you can actually heave a rock at a bird without breaking a window, regard tennis as part of their birthright....Budge started at the age of nine. Moreover, out there tennis is not a rich man's game. If it had been, we shouldn't have had Budge, with his clean sweep of all the amateur honors of the world, from Davis Cup to Wimbledon and Forest Lawn."
