Marshall Happer - Pioneer of the Game
1:10:38Marshall Happer is this week's guest. Marshall knows the battles tennis faces better than most. In 1981, he was selected as the first—and, as it would turn out, only—Administrator for the Men’s Tennis Council (MTC). On December 31, 1989, the MTC ceased operations, marking the end of unified governance for professional men’s tennis, and the beginning of the ATP “as a pure player association.” He was, in essence, the closest thing men’s tennis has ever had to a commissioner, and likely ever will. Marshall tells us his story. Very few have had the influence in the modern day pro game than he. A fascinating insight. Subscribe, Share and Review..................please🙏
