Maria Esther Bueno was presented with her official Hall of Fame ring by Christopher E. Clouser, Chairman of the International Tennis Hall of Fame & Museum on the mezzanine level of Arthur Ashe Stadium during the US Open in New York because of the inclement weather.
Hundreds of intrepid tennis fans and a TV Globo / SporTV crew from Brazil watched the occasion.
In recognition of her success and contribution to the game, the tennis legend has already been honoured with the highest award in the game when she was inducted to the International Tennis Hall of Fame in 1978.
“Maria Bueno is one of the greatest champions of all time,” said Clouser as he gave Maria the commemorative ring.
“She has nineteen Grand Slam titles, including four US National singles titles and five doubles titles to her name, which is an outstanding lifetime achievement.
“She has been an inspiration to so many people over the years and it gives me great pleasure to present this Hall of Fame ring to Maria, as well as a great personal honour.”
The assembled crowd cheered and Maria smiled a beacon of Brazilian sunshine on a rainy day.
“I feel very honoured to receive this ring,” said Maria Bueno.
“It is very beautiful and represents the history of the game, which has been such an important part of my life, so to be recognised by the Hall of Fame is particularly special to me.”
“She is so beautiful,” said one fan.
“Such a beautiful player… I loved the way she played. It was so special to see her up here and she really deserves the recognition.”
John Lloyd made an appearance at Woodfield Grove Tennis Club in south London during the week before Wimbledon, where he conducted a two-hour clinic for 20 players, and then enjoyed dinner with them afterwards.
He gave a tallk about the current state of tennis, responding to questions from the group in a witty dissertation.
In addition to drills and advice on technique, the group enjoyed a quick-fire volleying session with John and Mark.
