I have a question for you guys, who was best black-skinned player in tennis history. Now we have couple of good players with black skin, like Monfils,Tsonga or Young and Brown..

I am fan of these guys mentioned up in my text, but I really dont know who was best in history.:)

Yanick Noah?

Arthur Ashe because he pioneered (ATP) and won more.

This is no brainer.



  • World № 1
  • Grand slam champion, including the most prestigious one
  • The savior of the ATP in it's infancy (in the war against the promoters)
  • The first ever player on the circuit to not just recognize the limitations of wooden rackets but also to dare and chose a metal stick (way back before the 70s!)
  • Fought against Apartheid (cuz he and all other blacks was forbidden to play tennis in SA) his actions indirectly led to the release of Mandela and free elections.

Re: Best black-skinned player in tennis

I know that you didn't mean anything bad here but I do have a problem with this thread. I have friends who are white, black, brown, yellow, whatever. I'm white btw, it that matters. Why would you talk about tennis players based on their skin colour?

Why does it matter?
