The list of Black female Grand Slam tennis champions is a very short one. So is the list of Black female Olympic tennis champions. Among this very select group of Black female athletes is Althea Gibson and the Williams Sisters. Althea Gibson paved the way for all Blacks in tennis to follow.

A few months ago, ESPN aired a documentary directed by Nelson George called The Announcement. I just had an opportunity to watch this. If you missed it, this is highly recommended viewing for basketball fans, students of sports history and most importantly Magic fans.
