About

Strong and versatile, a man of tough stock and deep self convictions, George Lott was a masterful doubles player who won with a variety of partners. He shared the U.S. Championship twice with John Doeg in 1929 and in 1930, twice with Lester Stoefen in 1933 and in 1934, and once with John Hennessey in 1928.
At the U. S. championships singles in 1928, Lott beat Christian Boussus and John Doeg before losing to Frank Hunter in the semi finals. In 1931 Lott beat defending champion Doeg in the semi finals before losing to Ellsworth Vines in the final. In 1934 Lott became a touring professional, thereby giving up his amateur status and the ability to play in Grand Slam tournaments. In 1929 and 1930 he was ranked World No. 6 and No. 7 by A Wallis Myers; No. 6 by Pierre Gillon in 1930; and in 1931 was ranked No. 4 by Züricher Sport.
Lott was ranked in the top ten nine times in singles, and was a finalist in the singles at Forest Hills in 1931. Between 1928 and 1934, he was unbeaten in eleven doubles Davis Cup contests. Lott was an unimpeachable doubles tactician with excellent point playing instincts.
Lott was the men's tennis coach at DePaul University from 1969 until his death in Chicago on December 3, 1991. He had been inducted into the school's Athletics Hall of Fame in 1984.
George was inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame in 1964.
Lott is mostly remembered as being one of the greatest doubles players of all time.
