David Hall (AUS)



David Hall (AUS)"For 15 years wheelchair tennis gave me so many fantastic memories and opportunities, and made so many of my dreams come true. When the ITF asked me to be an ambassador for this incredible sport, it was my honour to accept, and I'll do my very best to promote it in any way that I can."

- David Hall

Hall is arguably the sport's most decorated men's player. His accomplishments include winning nine Australian Opens, seven British Opens, eight US Opens and over 70 other tournaments, including 19 at Super Series level.

Hall was a formidable force on the NEC Wheelchair Tennis Tour for more than a decade, finishing as the year-end No. 1 men's singles player and being crowned ITF World Champion on six separate occasions between 1995 and 2004.

He won every major title in the sport at some time during his career, including men's singles gold at the Sydney 2000 Paralympics, while winning two NEC Singles Maters titles, in 2002 and 2004. He was men's singles silver mdallist at the Athens 2004 Paralympics and men's singles bronze medallist at the Atlanta 1996 Paralympics.

Hall also helped Australia win the men's title at the World Team Cup on four occasions, with three different playing partners, and in 1995 he became the first non-American to win the US Open Super Series title. He has further been inducted to the Sport Australia Hall of Fame.

Hall retired in 2006, but still maintains close links with the sport and continues to work with young wheelchair tennis players in his native Australia.
