Former ATPer MICHAEL CHANG, late IMG Founder, Chair & CEO MARK MCCORMACK and late Tennis Week magazine Founder EUGENE SCOTT Saturday were inducted into the Int'l Tennis HOF. HOFer JOHN MCENROE "spoke fondly of Scott," saying he was a "tennis renegade" and a mentor to him. Scott's wife, POLLY, said her husband "cared passionately about tennis for more than 40 years." Former WTAer MONICA SELES described McCormack as "so far ahead of his time," and she remembered him "not only as a great businessman but as a husband, father and loyal friend." McCormack's wife, former WTAer BETSY NAGELSON, said that "few people were more passionate about tennis than her husband and described tennis festivals they held at their Orlando home every Christmas," welcoming "world-class players and hackers alike, and there were only three rules: McCormack's opponent got only one serve, had to hit the ball within his reach and could not lob" (PROVIDENCE JOURNAL, 7/13).
