Ashe Wednesday

On Monday a young Argentine named Juan Martin del Potro won his first major title, beating Roger Federer to win the US Open.

We’d like to honor, however, Arthur Ashe, who won the inaugural US Open in 1968. He’s pictured above in 1966; the accompanying story is here.

  1. The stadium at Forest Hills was very Ivy-the current one is not.

  2. AA looks great on this cover. “America’s Finest . . .” and he was.

  3. Congratulations to Juan Martin, he is a great player.

    I lost a wad of cash on that match. The last thing I want to do is read a pc story on Arthur Ashe.
