Hasn't been picked up by mainstream western media yet, but looks like Peruvian champion Alex Olmedo died yesterday.


This came hours after I brought him up in conversation with a friend for the first time ever which is a strange coincidence.

Had quite the 1959: Wimbledon and Australian champ, runner-up at the US. Ranked No. 2 in the newspaper world rankings. Then turned pro and won the 1960 US Pro event. Also won the 1958 US doubles and was a member of the winning 1958 Davis Cup team (with a USA citizenship). Hall of Famer since 1987.

RIP

RIP.

Kids in the U.S. do not know about him and do not care about tennis nowadays.
