About

Holcombe Ward was one of the most notable performers and reformers in the United States at the turn of the twentieth century. He played on four U.S. Davis Cup Challenge Round teams, including the first American squad in 1900, and captured his national championship in 1904.
In 1905 Ward won the London Grass Court Championships (now known as Queen's Club Championships). A six-time U.S. Doubles Champion, he retired undefeated in that tournament.
Ward was a member of the USA Davis Cup Team in 1900, 1902, 1905 and 1906.
After he left the game, he turned his full attention to the administrative side of the game, serving as President of the USLTA (U.S. Lawn Tennis Association) from 1937-47.

Holcombe was inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame in 1956.
