Whatever Happened To … Malivai Washington?

MaliVai "Mal" Washington

Mal Washington was important for African American tennis in many ways during and after his playing career. His Wimbledon final appearance was a breath of fresh air and would have probably made a more charismatic winner than Krajicek. He played during a tough era to get much Davis Cup play, but he had a stylish game and ended with a winning record. He now does great work with his Kids Foundation and apparently in real estate.

What are they doing now?: A Realtor
Career titles: 4
Win/Loss Record: 254/184
Career High Ranking: 11 (1992)
Finest moment: Reaching the final of Wimbledon 1996
Famous For: Being the first African-American man since Arthur Ashe 21 years earlier to reach a Grand Slam singles final.
He Said It: “I had 13 great days at Wimbledon that year, but Richard had 14. I loved playing at Wimbledon and reaching the final. But my goal was to win the title.”
