Eugene (Gene) Scott was an American tennis player, tennis journalist, author and founder of “Tennis Week” magazine. He was a member of the United States Davis Cup team. Scott was one of several supporters who successfully lobbied the USTA to name its National Tennis Center stadium “Arthur Ashe Stadium” in Ashe’s honor.
Relying on a strong serve-and-volley game, Scott reached a career-high world ranking of No. 11 in 1965 and was ranked inside the United States’ Top 10 five times. He was undefeated in Davis Cup competition and won more than 40 senior championships. He played tennis with world leaders ranging from former United States President and fellow Yale alumni George H.W. Bush and former Russian President Boris Yeltsin.
Scott founded “Tennis Week” magazine in 1974, and began writing his “Vantage Point” column soon after, which became one of the most widely-read and influential columns in the sport.
