Jim Courier was a typical 2-year-old, tossing a baseball wildly around the house while imitating his favorite major leaguer. Within a few years, Courier went from throwing a ball to hitting one with a tennis racket. Four Grand Slam titles and two Davis Cup championships later, Courier was inducted into the Tennis Hall of Fame on Saturday along with Yannick Noah, Jana Novotna and Butch Buchholz.
