Agassi is the sole nominee in the Recent Player Category.



Andre Agassi, former World No. 1, eight-time Grand Slam champion, and one of the most remarkable athletes in history,
has been nominated to receive the highest honour available in the sport of tennis, induction into the International
Tennis Hall of Fame. Agassi is the sole nominee in the Recent Player Category.

Joining Agassi on the ballot in the Master Player Category are Thelma Coyne Long, who dominated Australian tennis
in the 1930s -1950s, and Christine Truman Janes, a British star of the 1950s and 1960s. Nominated in the Contributor
Category are influential tennis promoter and administrator Mike Davies and Fern Lee “Peachy” Kellmeyer, who has
played a vital role in the growth of women’s tennis.

Voting for the 2011 ballot will take place over the next few months, culminating with an announcement in early 2011
to reveal the Class of 2011 Inductees. The 2011 Induction Ceremony will be held on Saturday, July 9, 2011 at the
International Tennis Hall of Fame in Newport, Rhode Island. The Ceremony will be held in conjunction with the
Campbell’s Hall of Fame Tennis Championships, an ATP World Tour event.

Tickets for the tournament and Induction Ceremony will go on sale in October, with a pre-sale for International
Tennis Hall of Fame Members beginning on October 13 at 10:00 a.m. and the General Public ticket sale beginning on
October 26 at 10:00 a.m.

Since 1955, the International Tennis Hall of Fame has inducted 218 people representing 19 countries. Located in Newport,
Rhode Island, the International Tennis Hall of Fame & Museum is a non-profit organisation dedicated to preserving the
history and heritage of tennis. The Hall of Fame offers an extensive museum that chronicles the history of the
sport and honours the game’s greatest legends.

Surrounding the Museum are 13 historic grass tennis courts that date back to 1880 and are open to the public, which
play host to the Campbell’s Hall of Fame Tennis Championships, an ATP World Tour tournament, and the annual Hall
of Fame Induction Ceremony in July. The facility hosts numerous additional public events year-round.
