As always: good ones. Arthur Ashe states it very simply - and it's all one can (or is required) to do.

I like them all, but the Arthur Ashe's quote is my favorite.
I saw Arthur play tennis, and not only was he good player, but he was poetry in motion. I can only imagine what he went through to get where he was in an all white sport.

I'm so proud that they named the stadium after him in NY. He was a real asset to the tennis world and way beyond.
I'm glad you included a quote from him, Don. He is one of my heroes .
