Mark Knowles


Even if another good player emerges from Nassau, Bahamas they still will not be the best player from this country. Knowles is a doubles legend, partnering with another legend Daniel Nestor for a long time. His off-court contribution to the evolution of the doubles game and philanthropic activities has earned him a special place amongst his peers. It’s really a shame more people have not heard of Mark, but if you think you know tennis you should.
