The 2015 Hall of Fame tennis class was announced Monday with Amelie Mauresmo, David Hall (wheelchair), Nancy Jeffett (tennis industry) gaining entry.
I can’t speak much about Hall or Jeffett, and I can’t really complain much with the Mauresmo selection since the Frenchwoman did win two Slams in 2006 at the Australian when Justin Henin retired and Wimbledon beating Henin, and she also reached No. 1.
But is she more worthy than shunned Yevgeny Kafelnikov? No way!
Stealing from a previous post, here’s a glance at Yevgeny’s resume:
- Two Grand Slam titles (1996 French Open, 1999 Australian Open)
- 2000 Olympic Gold Medal in singles
- Six weeks holding the No. 1 ranking
- Four Grand Slam doubles titles
- One of just 6 players in Open Era to win 25 or more singles & doubles titles
- 26 career singles titles
- 27 career doubles
- 2002 Davis Cup title
- Finish ranked among Top 5 five times
Hall of Fame numbers? Without question.
So to the Hall, just do the right thing and get him in, please.
