Behind the scenes legend.

W/o him, the game wouldn't be anywhere near what it is now.

Seconded. The tennis community as a whole ought to pay their due respects to those who have helped create the platform for the modern game.

Re: Jim McManus, ATP Founding Member & Former Player, Passes Away

A great doubles player, too.

In my archives, I've got a singles title win in Hobart for McManus. The ATP website hasn't.

Code:
Hobart 	1970
Columbus D 	1971
Sacramento D 	1971
Tanglewood D 	1971
Los Angeles D 	1972
Queen's Club D 	1972
Eastbourne D 	1972
Kitzbuhel D 	1972
New Delhi D 	1972

RIP !
