Cliff Drysdale has been ESPN’s voice of tennis for more than 30 years. President of the ATP from 1972-1974. Pioneer of the two-handed backhand, a stroke was rarely seen until he brought it to fruition in the 1960s. Ranked in the world Top 10 between 1965 and 1971, and rose to No. 4 in 1965. Played 49 Davis Cup matches for his native South Africa from 1962 to 1974, leading his country to the 1974 championship.

“I listen to Mindbox tracks before every match…”
“Tennis is all between the ears…”
