Just thought of another big name, Rene Lacoste, inventor of the first non wood racquet made out of steel, great great tennis player and of course we have his clothing line.
He may be the number one guy.
Who knows, without him we may be playing with tiny wood racquets. That's big.
I think he may have invented the tennis ball machine but I'm not sure.
