About

When historians reflect on the greatest Australian doubles players of all time, the name Adrian Quist invariably is included in the conversation.

His father was Karl Quist, who had been a noted interstate cricketer, and owned a sporting goods store at the time of his son's birth. The tennis legend grew up in Adelaide and once played Harry Hopman, but lost, having given Hopman a head start.

Quist won ten consecutive Australian Championships in doubles and was a standout performer in that capacity. His return from the advantage court was outstanding, and he had as deep a command of the doubles craft as anyone who has ever played the game. Quist held the distinction of being the only man to win Grand Slam championships before and after World War II.

Quist was inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame in 1984.
