Re: Jewish tennis players
Never heard about Becker's mother before. And I thought it was Sampras's paternal grandfather. Sampras was not raised Jewish, I know he's said that.
Also, I've heard that Eliot Teltscher and Gabriel Marcus (ARG?) are Jewish, but I'm not 100% sure.
Althea Gibson's doubles partner (Angela Buxton?) was Jewish; the two of them allegedly hooked up as partners because they both could not play in most private clubs.
Also, a Dutch player from the 70s, Tom somebody, was Jewish. The name is escaping me.
