Arthur Robert Ashe, Jr. (July 10, 1943 - February 6, 1993) was an American professional tennis player. He was the only man of African ancestry to ever win the singles title at Wimbledon (1975), the Australian Open (1970) or the US Open (1968). In 1993, he established the Arthur Ashe Institute for Urban Health, and was named Sports Illustrated magazine's ''Sportsman of the Year.'' He completed his memoir, 'Days of Grace,' just days before his death in 1993.
