About

Jim McManus, 70, who was in the tennis arena for more than 50 years as a player, administrator and fan of the game, passed away on Tuesday morning of medical complications following his battle with cancer.

As a founding member, and member of the original Board of Directors at the ATP in 1972, McManus spent 28 years as an employee with the ATP Tour working in various departments: the ranking system, tournament representation and development, pension plan, player entry department, Senior Tour and alumni services.

\"It is with great sadness that we learn of Jim?s passing,\" said Adam Helfant, the ATP\'s Executive Chairman and President. \"From his early days as a player, and later as a founding member of the ATP, Jim was always regarded as a true pioneer of the game of tennis. On behalf of the ATP, I can say that men?s tennis has truly lost one of its greatest and most significant figures.

\"Jim will be remembered with great fondness, and sorely missed by everyone fortunate enough to know him. Our thoughts and deepest condolences go to his wife Carole, and their two children Kate and Jordy.\"

McManus attended the University of California at Berkeley where for two years he attained All-American honours in tennis having reached the NCAA Doubles final. Before the advent of the ATP Rankings, he was twice ranked in the Top 10 of the US singles and twice No. 2 in doubles (with Bill Hoogs in 1963 and Jim Osborne in 1969). He reached the 1968 US Open semi-finals (w/Osborne).

Growing up in Northern California, Jim?s interest in playing came from his parents. He learned the game at the Berkeley Tennis Club from a series of coaches, the most prominent being Tom Stow, who taught 1938 Grand Slam champion Don Budge.

McManus is survived by his wife, Carole, of 30 years, and their two children, Kate and Jordy.
