For tennis aficionados and enthusiasts alike the acclaimed International Tennis Hall of Fame, located in Newport, Rhode Island, is a place that should be visited at least once. Home of this summer's Campbell's Hall of Fame Tennis Championships, the International Tennis Hall of Fame holds its own special grandeur. The setting of beautiful coastal Newport is the perfect backdrop to house the mementos and memories of tennis' greatest legends and moments. Equally as fitting that the tournament be hosted on tennis' most elegant surface, grass. As you walk the grounds, you feel the echoes of the sports' past and the presence of the greats who have been there before. It reminds you that tennis truly is a game to love, teach, compete in, and be celebrated.

I still remember the image of a young 10 year old girl just getting started in tennis under the guidance of a 70 plus year old man pacing behind her as she hit hundreds of balls on the Tennis Tutor ball machine. Allen played as a top junior at USC and went on to teach some of the biggest stars in Hollywood. He then spent years in Corporate America but after he retired returned to tennis, his passion.

He was a big fan of Mike Agassi and his ball machine drills, ideas and strategies. Any child that needed help, Allen would help, no charge. This was what led to a 70 plus Allen Tong to train McKay Novak, who had started weeks before, for hours on end. Soon after, McKay went on to be one of the best players in town and still is. In six months Allen's kind heart and ball machine drills took McKay into the #1 spot in the 10's which she eventually duplicated in the 12's. McKay is now a top athlete in the country, a straight A student at Meadows and has had her life altered dramatically by Allen's willingness.





   
Americans Bob Bryan and Mike Bryan made history on Sunday at the Farmers Classic in Los Angeles as they won a record-breaking 62nd tour-level doubles title together with a hard-fought 6-7(6), 6-2, 10-7 victory over Eric Butorac and Jean-Julien Rojer in the final of the ATP World Tour 250 hard-court tennis tournament.

The 32-year-old twins, who were appearing in their 100th tour-level team final (62-38 record), broke the record they had previously held jointly with recent Hall-of-Fame inductees Todd Woodbridge and Mark Woodforde. They tied the record in May with victory at the Madrid (d. Nestor-Zimonjic), one of six tour-level titles they have won this season.
