Eugene L. Scott (1937–2006) was one of America’s most important tennis players. A world-renowned champion who had ranked 11th in the world. Not only are most of the international tennis institutions indebted to his innumerable services, but a large number of famous players attribute their victories to his efforts. He was a human being in the full sense of the word: an ideal son, a model father and a just attorney, he was fully acquainted with the art of management, and most importantly — experienced and unparalleled in producing tennis tournaments.
Sasson: Gene supported me during the most critical moments of my life, in the process of founding the tournament. I can’t even begin to express my enormous gratitude and appreciation for this man.
I thank the Lord for introducing me to his dear family. May he rest in peace, and may the Lord aid and protect his sweet wife Polly, and his young children Lucy and Sam Scott.
