About

No one in his time played the game of tennis with more polish, precision or fluidity than Dennis Ralston. When he was at the height of his powers in the 1960s-finishing three consecutive years as the No. 1 ranked man in the United States-he made the game look as if it was invented for him, developing a masterful forehand volley that was his signature shot. Ralston later established himself as an estimable American Davis Cup captain and as the esteemed coach of Chris Evert.
