Tennis Legend, born in Fort Smith, passed away

Budge Patty who won two majors (French and Wimbledon) and became #1 in the world passed away at age 97. Patty was inducted into International Tennis Hall of Fame in 1977. Patty remains the most successful native born Arkansan in the history of Tennis. RIP Budge.

I’m sure there’s an interesting story between being born in Fort Smith and graduating from Los Angeles High School.
