Tennis Record of Professional Tennis Players (Open Era)

by on December 28, 2012
in Record Holders

Rafael Nadal

Before the Open Era, the tennis players as professional, skilled and amateur were differentiated. And when Open Era starts many players becomes professional like Hoad won the tennis final at Wimbledon and became professional. He won only 2 matches out of 11 professional matches. Because of the lack of finance, before the open era it was difficult to arrange the tournaments at any time.

There ware many problems before the open era, that the professional and armatures were being face like in 1937, another tennis player Gottfried von cannot enter in the singles of French Championships and also he played the single without his will. He also cannot play matches any Grand Tennis Tournament which was held in 1938 and 1939 championship of U.S and French.
