Mark Knowles receives Commitment Award


Mark Knowles (BAH) receives the Davis Cup Commitment Award from ITF President Francesco Ricci Bitti

There are not many records that Mark Knowles does not hold when it comes to Davis Cup in his native Bahamas.

The 42-year-old from Nassau was given his latest piece of silverware when he met with ITF President Francesco Ricci Bitti at Wimbledon to be given his Davis Cup Commitment Award.

During a career that spanned 19 years, Knowles played 29 ties and amassed a win-loss record of 41-32 in both singles and doubles.

His first tie took place in 1989, when Bahamas defeated Venezuela 5-0 in an Americas Zone Group II clash in Nassau. Knowles won both his singles rubbers and so commenced almost two decades of affiliation with the competition.

Knowles made his last appearance in 2008, winning the doubles rubber alongside Marvin Rolle as Paraguay defeated Bahamas 4-1.

Having announced his retirement from tennis in 2012, the three-time men’s doubles Grand Slam winner can still sometimes be seen on court but remains involved with the game working as a correspondent on the Tennis Channel.
