American tennis great Vic Seixas, a pillar of the sport and Hall of Fame legend, is in need of financial assistance for mounting healthcare expenses that come with age. The former Wimbledon and US Open Champion and World War II veteran is now 95 years old and living in Northern California. Vic is faced with escalating medical costs and his many friends and fans in the tennis community are banding together to raise funds to underwrite home health care and other costly medical needs.
 
Vic is tennis’ oldest living Grand Slam Champion. When he was asked about this unique distinction on his 95th birthday last year, he good-naturedly quipped, “Well, I’d rather be the youngest!”

Of course, longevity has always been a hallmark of Vic’s persona — he played competitively until he was nearly 50 years old and he competed in the U.S. Championships at Forest Hills a record 28 times between 1940 and 1969, winning titles in singles, doubles, and mixed. Vic’s success was buoyed by unstoppable determination more than anything else—although his stellar net game did always give him an edge. After retiring with 15 major titles to his name, Vic continued to teach tennis and stay active on court until age 75.
 
The players of Vic's era played for the love of the game and were instrumental in building the foundation of what we know today as professional tennis. When asked about his legacy in the sport just last year, Vic humbly remarked, “Oh, I know what I did, I know I enjoyed it and I'm very thankful that I was able to give so much of my life to tennis.”
 
Currently, Vic is in significant need of financial support to ensure that he is adequately cared for. A gift of any amount will be greatly appreciated and utilized. Thank you for helping this Hall of Famer
