"Folks and welcome to the tennis podcast and very special edition of the tennis podcast and back by popular demand brackets by David Law ov- tennis relived. We told you. It would be coming back. Of course, it was coming back. Don't worry. We know that actual live tennis is happening this tennis lived and. Second. One prior to the US Open is not in place of talking about live tennis. And related things it is an addition and a very special and necessary edition as well. This one will be focusing on the life, the career, the legacy of Alpha Gibson, and our next one will be focusing on the very same of thrash respectively the first african-american women and men to win Grand Slam titles in NFL Gibson's case the first African. American. Person To, be, admitted, to play. Professional tennis an extraordinary women in extraordinarily. Important figure in tennis history and one that. Hasn't been sufficiently remembered or given her Jews always over the is so. We're hoping to write that in a very tiny tiny way today certainly been. An extraordinary learning experience for us to to get to know these t plays an the significance in tennis history say thank you David for your enthusiasm. For tennis relived. Point Yeah it's very different what we're doing today and what we're doing with the Arthur Ashe podcast as well. When we were doing the Roland Garros relived Wimbledon the Olympics, they were all about events or matches or moments in time specific moments in time when we came up to realizing that the US Open for stop was going to happen and we really don't have two weeks worth of shows to fill much as I'd love to come up with twenty wonderful matches and memories which no doubt we will get to in the. List of Twelve Pete Sampras much is that he submitted for the short lift. US Open relived and fifteen Jimmy Connors matches. Including all seven from all from. Sorry. All five from nine hundred, ninety one. But When we came to to look at this and we started to try to think well, what what should we do I personally suddenly realize the the gaping chasm mind knowledge in my reading of the Games history and I think particularly Alpha Gibson I feel ashamed not to know what I now know and what we want to do with this show. Is Tell, the stories that we've discovered and to properly tell the history as best as we can. I. Think we all knew that line first black woman to play the US Open and win Grand Slam titles but I'd never properly engaged with that line or really understood what that actually. Meant or considered what she actually had to overcome to become that because tennis was this elitist sport at a racially segregated time in America. So it's an extraordinary thing that tennis was used as AVIK BY A. Gibson and now thrash. To advance the black race and I'd never really. Never really thought about that before how how, what, a, what a strength of character and what a special talent it took to be able to achieve as a black person in in that white world and it's just been. Just been happening really to have read and sort of spent time. In their lives over the last few over the last few days and weeks doing this research and and it felt very necessary and timely as well.

Not, very, big in Cameroon in the whole country, back nine court, so to play tennis was very privilege radio privilege so. so we used to go to the club at night, but at that time my parents couldn't afford a racket in one day.

And they happen to play one day my club. During the clinic they decide. They played with the kids. And I played with Sir and Liked what he saw. I was slim press. You know he was my heroes. At the end of the clinic gave me a racket is racket. Head competition that worth like. Probably Probably what my parents would making every month. and it was you know it was like a dream for me to meeting. Dr Racket Sonya poster. Saying To Yannick I hope I'll see one that. So that was very funny. But the next thing that happened is after this story went to the French Open and he talked to shut. It was the president of the Federation. I told him that he was a little kid was playing. Or was in French. Speaking. Country and And I I. The scholarship came to friends because of author I played in niece for few years. And? The first time I played in Wimbledon That was nine years after we met was in Wimbledon because as for wild card. That was accepted and we play doubles on center court.

Off wasn't out on a field field joe he was in his parents house in Pottstown Pennsylvania sitting in front of his computer playing the video game Gabe fortnight streaming his games almost daily for Amazon's twitch a website for gamers and. That's where a scout for an eastwards team called the sentinel saw in play. He signed a one year contract with the Sentinel's back in March and that paid off for gear store and the sentinels almost immediately. Yup Right here. This was in July at the Arthur. Ashe Stadium in flushing New York. That's the same stadium where tennis is players compete in the. US Open gear stuff. was there on the field for the first fortnight World Cup and it was a spectacle spread of players across the screen. There's your talk ten on the left side. The top players in the world sat on the field behind computer monitors side by side playing against each other in the virtual game which was is then projected onto multiple matrons for thousands of fans and stands bogus parents in the audience of course as well cheering him on and they weren't the only ones fortnight has about two hundred fifty million registered users and more than a million of them or streaming the World Cup Competition Jim Champion and the prize. Money was worth a lot. The three million dollars of that gears dorm took home about two point. Four million the sentinels got to keep the rest according to people familiar with the matter but even so boga and other eastport competitors like him are living.

Sports is expected to climb around twenty six percent this year to reach about one point. Two billion dollars hours while at the fast growing need it's still just a small part of the global video game. Industry is estimated to be worth one hundred fifty billion from the Wall Street Journal. This is the future of everything. I'm Qatari Yokum. This episode is part three of our highlights series where we bring you the best from the Wall Street. Journal's Tech Live Conference in Laguna Beach California for Three Days Wall Street Journal editors gathered alongside leaders in the tech community to discuss everything from the future of artificial intelligence to data privacy today. We're focusing on the future of games. Hi Jason Gay. And I'm a sports columnist for the Wall Wall Street Journal. I'm speaking Andrew Wilson the CEO of electronic arts electronic arts or EA as a global leader in the gaming world world especially in sports games. They're the ones who make madden NFL. Fica need for speed apex and of course the Sims the company has more than three hundred million registered players around the world and last year two thousand eighteen to posted a net revenue of five point. One five billion in dollars Andrew spoke to us about how e sports mobile gaming on social networks and mixed reality Games are changing the way people play and also also starts on the industry overall. I want to ask you right at the top. What you were excited about right now like what is happening in your trade? It might be something you are doing but it might be something somebody else's do what is getting you excited right now in gaming if you think about how cloud is going to change the consume everything right so we watch more TV and more music and we listen to music and AL belief is that we're actually started out a blue the lines between real and virtual with the cloud. So you get to place where you get up in the morning and every activity you perform through the day has has some kind of payoff out of a game. You might run to work. It means you have more energy and fee for. You might have a dozen eggs in the fridge. Which means you're sims a fed? You might drive fast. So you'll need speed game is better. You may interact with a whole Gotcha people so you have more power in. PG So this blurring of the lines between the real and the virtual kind of moving getting from a discrete experienced went industry experience. So are there applications locations for businesses to actually game by the workplace people showing up for the nine thirty meeting on time. I think that's happening already. We see that in schooling to where we use game fixations a lot of schooling education is becoming more compelling for a new generation so inevitably it happens in our workplace. That's for sure. Do you think that people can burn out on it or do you think that that is something that will stay the idea that people want that kind of competitive metabolism where they gamified experience social interaction and competition competition at two of the most powerful motives of human behavior that positive so guilt obligation addiction causes as human beings. Do all kinds of things until such point in time is actually actually. This is just really bad and we kick the habit cold Turkey and then we tell all of our friends not to do it as well but social direction and competition the two things that we don't we don't get tired of it kind of drives us throughout our lives and so really the very core of gaming these to call positive motivators of human behavior and provided you do it right and you build over time and and you get the rewards and benefits of those two things that it's not something you boone out on. It's actually something that enriches and extends it enhances your life. What's an example of something that you've experimented with yourself that that you've been surprised? It's been a very sort of exciting satisfying gaming experience candy crush. Who would've thought like doing this and doing this? I mean here. We are five five you six years later and we're still doing it. Yeah Yeah it's a good segue to the next question. which is that? I think of gaming as a business where every now and again there are true phenomenon that just crossed the culture. And what is it like. And you've had some of them. What's that like to have a game? That isn't just a business success but just sort of vaults into the cultural conversation station I think every day you up to build entertainment. You hope is that you're going to detain you. Know tens or hundreds of millions of people I mean as as the providers and creative at a time and I think that's all of our objective when we get up in the morning every now and then it actually happens and all kinds of good things come from that no kinds of challenges come from that. We had a game earlier this year. Old Apex Legends. We brought fifty million people into that game in a month. And that's that's a wonderful thing. I mean that's mind blowing and we we're running around the office cheering. How compelling this game and then all of a sudden you discover there are all kinds of negative manifestations of of that kind of broad appeal cheetahs in in the spice and you get people trying to counterfeit currency in spice and you get bullies in the spice? And then all of these kind of negative manifestations of human behavior that we see in the real world quite frankly also manifest that skyline a will that has this many eight people interacting with it and so there's a whole nother victor of work that we have to do to keep that that experience fun and safe and enjoyable for the people who play. How do you see around corners to predict predict and anticipate? What kinds of Shenanigans might happen at a game or been doing it alone time here? We spent a lot of time thinking about if we were bad bad people. What would we try? And do we go out and hire some bad people to see an awesome. What would they do that works? And then the other thing is is we've written a whole program. Set that that really looks at by human behavior over. Tom's human compensation over time and we're getting better and better through machine learning at predicting where positive energy cartoons on itunes negative or

"I think this is a really fascinating issue for this next election. I'm a fourth generation Republican, and my whole family is great on this issue. I'm not really sure why this is being framed as a partisan issue, and I'll tell you from being out and talking with lots of people around the state that there are lots of liberal women that are kind of talking really highly of Senator start event in part because of his really steadfast support. And you know, he's done a very eloquent job of defending this and putting it forward as this is the right thing to do. And in my experience, moderate liberals don't mind being represented by moderate moderate conservatives and vice versa. And so this is kind of I feel like this is going to be an issue that really starts to separate, you know, who is reasonable in our modern society versus who's dug in and doesn't wanna see a statement of equality for gender. Which is. Yeah. I just find that kind of beyond the pale. That's me. Well, listen, it's gotten a lot of attention. I appreciate you spending so much time with us over the last couple of opportunities we've had to talk Katie Hornets from the Virginia ratify ERA. Thanks a lot. Thank you seven forty five year. On this Wednesday morning and Arthur Ashe proposal to rename the boulevard has gotten a lot of attention. But just there is resistance from the folks who live on the boulevard, and yeah, I mean if you know anything about Richmond. Am I wrong to say that the people who live on the boulevard are not? I mean, they're pretty progressive in their mindset. Look at the way, everybody votes in the city, especially around that area. So I'm I was there for a number of Christmas events over the holidays. And you know, a lot of my friends who still speak to me are left-wing liberals and a lot of them live on the boulevard, and even they weren't supportive of changing the name, they love Arthur ash, I'm all for paying tribute Arthur ash, I'm just wondering when you recognize perhaps that this idea which was intended to Arthur to honor Arthur ash is turning into something that's a little more negative than anybody ever and -ticipant it, and you know, Arthur ash is the only modern Richmond or Virginian to be honored with a statue on monument avenue. So we were just flat out ignoring him. Maybe this boulevard proposal would be a little more response. Or, you know, take on a different meaning, but he's he's fully represented here. And we should keep that in mind as we burn more time and money discussing the boulevard name seven forty seven.

Governor mccrory if you missed yesterday's Pat mccrory show governor mccrory was at the Connor funeral over the weekend had a chance to talk to the family and had this to say yesterday. I walked by the limousine where the family was in and they rolled down the window and the mother of Kevin and her incredible dad, if I t's has the greatest mustache I've ever seen in the world and beard. I remember teasing him about it in the governor's mansion when they came to visit. They just gave me the most wonderful hug, and they were so appreciative of the outpouring of love that their son was receiving. And then their daughter gave me the biggest smile and went Mr. governor. I'd love to come and play the piano again at the governor's mansion. And she had the biggest smile she had one of these kids smiles were there several teeth out front teeth out. And it was like she was almost oblivious of what was going on around her. But her thoughts were on playing the piano, and the governor's mansion I didn't have the heart teller that I could bring her to the governor's mansion. But I said there's no doubt about it. You'll be back at the governor's mansion to play piano. And I said, you're beautiful. She said, thank you, Mr. governor. And she had the most beautiful smile on her face. Probably not understand the magnitude of what was happening around her and probably what will happen for an impact her for the rest of life. The loss of her father. Last Friday, I talked about maybe it's time for Nike to give shoe contract to hurt her brother. Braxton who was wearing her daddy's officers hat throughout the funeral. Maybe Braxton and Valerie. Barley need a. Shoe contract. Because right now that family suffered and they're gonna hurt and financially. Maybe ESPN needs to give them the Arthur Ashe award, or at least give it to officer Michael Potts who had a similar shooting and he lived through it during the ten year. I was governor. Maybe he deserves the Arthur Ashe award because he used to play baseball for the Milwaukee Brewers pitcher. And when he got out of pitching for the major leagues, he became a North Carolina highway patrol officer. And sadly, he got shot in the head just like Kevin did, but he lived, but he's no longer a trooper. He's on disability. He'd be a perfect recipient of the Arthur Ashe award on ESPN. Or maybe some of this means upon millions of dollars that Eric. And another football player for the Philadelphia. Eagles were arguing about maybe they give a little money to the Connor family and help them out. So their kids have a chance to go to college and maybe play football or play piano. So I asked you ever want to mourn the loss of officer Connor and pray for their family as we go out listening to her plane. A beautiful Christmas song.

Where he actually wanted we wrap day grass tennis court with a sixteen foot blue screen around the whole court and reenacted match point Arthur Ashe's played in that scene by Chris Eubanks, who's Georgia Tech. He was number one for George Tak for several years. And now he's out there on the Tories top two hundred in the world, and he played in the US open this year and last year, singles and doubles. And it's a combination of the live action and a really interesting form of animation called sand animation where each image is drawn in sand. And then photographed and we had over forty seven hundred hand-drawn images from our amazing animators Rua and Masha and give credit to Brad Lichtenstein and his team at CR s for pulling this thing off. It was presented at the open. The USDA gave us a great space where we turned it into pop up installation all things Arthur ash, and then folks could view the VR, and we just had wonderful feedback the interesting feedback if you wanted to find that we've tweeted out the link you can follow us on Twitter at one a glad to hear from those of you who are sharing your thoughts and recollections about Arthur Ashe who's in Richmond. Virginia tweeted I live in Richmond. And he has a monument on the well known monument avenue here. However, he faces west looking away from the monument celebrating the lost cause of the civil war. Paul emailed. I saw Mr. ash play a match in Sacramento in nineteen sixty eight with Charles Pasarell one thing I remember about Ashley was his coolness. And the use of the word hamburger when many a player would have chosen an expletive joining us to discuss. That is Charlie Pasarell a good friend of. Arthur ash, a former tennis champion for Puerto Rico and one of the founders with Arthur ash of the national junior tennis league, Charlie. Welcome to one A. Good morning, everybody. Did that actually happen? Did he use hamburger instead of Cussing? I don't remember that. We probably did sounds like the kind of thing he would have done. Yes. Absolutely. Yes. Arthur was nothing. But, you know, just a class act all the way, what was that kind of friendship. Like, I mean, I can only imagine that, you know, everyone has all these wonderful things to say about Arthur Ashe deservedly. So but behind the scenes when the cameras are often when the crowds go away, you know, being a friend is someone who has that much pressure on them has has got to carry a lot of weight. What was he like when the cameras were away when the crowds ward around? Oh, he was just, you know, first of all he was my best friend, and he was just an oral guy, and you know, just like a typical young college student when we went through. Get at school and. It was hard for me to imagine. You know that arts are what an unbelievable on the individual. He was because he was just my friend. He was my buddy. And but now, I started realizing what an enormous impact he had on on unsold many lives and on society, and it, but it was hard for me. Then when I was around him. I mean, he was just my buddy. So it was very easy to get along. With never put any pressure on you. We had normal conversations normal arguments. And so it was really wonderful being around him. How did you to meet? Well, you know, the first time I met him was at the Orange Bowl junior tennis tournament in Miami, Florida. I was twelve years old, and he was thirteen years old. So we played we played junior tennis against each other for for number of years. But we really got to know each other and became best friends when we went to UCLA together. What was it about him that you clicked with why did you hit it off? He was just so easy to get along with. I mean, you know, we hit it off right away. And he was always very exciting to be around. 'cause we we talked about a lot of really interesting topics. He, you know, he was one that I'll tell you what what Arthur did that in a way kind of annoy me at the time. He was so always wanting to know what you thought you always wanted to know how you were feeling and I try sometimes we'll how about yourself. Are you feeling are you doing what are you think? And he would quickly turn around the conversation. He was always trying to pry upon trying to learn from other people and trying to understand you better. And and so it was hard to get something out of author about our. And so, you know, it was an amazing guy. But we have some very very good times. And some interesting conversations what about his political activism, his advocacy, advocacy. How much of that? From your perspective was a part of his life before he started to to get more famous. Always he had always had an open mind about everything, you know. He he, and he I would say that. Think about think about the times when we were going to college and even the time when he actually won the US open. The civil rights movement was in full bloom so to speak. The Vietnam war. What's going on tennis? Even the sport of tennis, which is less significant, but what's going through a major revolt because open tennis was coming into being. And all of a sudden, you know, the first US open Arthur Ashe wins the US open and Lieutenant in the US army because he had taken the ROTC program at UCLA and is the first. Black American African American male tennis player to to actually win the US open. And I mean, I think if you had to write a script you can write a better script about that. And then he used that platform to just really kind of a preached all of these message, and you know, to the world about he's impact was incredible not only not only in the United States, but even all around the world, South Africa. For example, you mentioned him being a Lieutenant as a result of being part of UCLA's ROTC. We heard from Lieutenant Colonel by the name of Richard who emailed I was a West Point cadet in the late sixties and vividly recall joining with dozens of other cadets as we watched Lieutenant ash warm up the tennis team before practice the tennis courts at that time were directly across from the library. And all the cadets would pass the courts on the way the class Lieutenant Ashton an assistant coach would hit balls with the varsity players, his stroke was so smooth and his. Commentary. So soothing follow-through hit a little harder eye on the ball, Lieutenant ash epitomized. What all we cadets aspired to become an officer and a gentleman Charlie could you chime in on that how did his military service shape who he was? Well, he had tremendous discipline and certainly for him to be Lieutenant Tori, and to be in the military was I don't want to say it was an easy task. But it was sort of fit very well into this personality 'cause he he was one of the most disciplined person you've ever met and the truth of the matter was that it showed in his tennis game. It showed in his life. You know, because he just the way he conducted himself, all alone. I don't think anybody can actually say any can remember or can say anything bad about Arthur ash that misbehave or he acted you know, that he was a rebel or he acted in a bad way. I never have. I don't know of any anybody that I've ever said anything bad about Arthur. And and that's probably the greatest attribute about him is that because he preached a very strong message. But he did it with such grace and such discipline. And and such a nice way that you couldn't you had to listen to him. You you couldn't get angry at him. You can you can say anything bad about him. And and that's the beautiful thing about Arthur, I'm Joshua Johnson. And you're listening to one A. One of the listeners who is a part of our one a text club wrote. I was born in Alabama in one thousand nine hundred fifty a time and place when racism was absorbed as Moses embedded itself in the DNA and had to be surgically extracted piece by piece every black person who suffered in every black person who excelled was part of that surgical team. Arthur Ashe was front and center the world lost a good man far too soon when Arthur Ashe died, I remember where I was standing when I heard the news, and I can't say that for just anyone what a beautifully written taxed, we are honored to have your thoughts. And if you want to join the one eight texts club, you can text one eight two six three seven three five we'll send you know, more than one text each day usually ahead of a program that we'd like you to chime in on and you can stop at any time to leave the club. Again, won a the number one. The letter A two six three seven three five Raymond Arsenault could ask you to chime in on that text Arthur Ashe had a heart attack at the age of thirty six. We have a sense. That things are carried the stresses of being Arthur Ashe weighed on his health. I think they did much like Jackie Robinson, who bore more stress than anyone realized. I think Arthur by always calling the ball out or in. Against his white opponents. Make sure there wasn't a ruckus. I think he remember he he was the Jackie Robinson of men's tennis. But he was Jackie Robinson without a Willie Mays or Hank Aaron or an Ernie banks. He was all alone entire his entire career. But I think he. As he said near the end of his life. And he shocked I think some of his closest friends, perhaps even Charlie Pasarell that I know Donald Dell was shocked when he said that despite aids. The greatest burden. I've had to bear is race. Yeah. And he felt that. So deeply even though he had become as he as he put it a citizen in the world and was fabulously successful. He never forgot where he came from it. He never forgot those early struggles. And I think it's a great testament to the man that he felt these things so deeply and and passionately that he sort of took the weight of the world on his shoulders. Once he did turn to activism in nineteen sixty eight. He never looked back and he became perhaps the premier public intellectual in the world. Yeah. I I'm glad you brought up his fight with HIV number of our listeners have commented on that. And he became HIV positive as the result of a blood transfusion during surgery, one of the listeners in our one eight text club wrote when Arthur Ashe announced he was infected with HIV. It was at a time when our government was still turning a blind eye in the George H W Bush administration as a gay, man. I was grateful and proud that our ally Mr. ash took such bold steps forward Rex Miller. I know our time is short. But just talk about the impact of that aspect of Arthur Ashe's legacy. Just changing the conversation around HIV. Our project doesn't focus on that. But I I was around through that and paid attention a lot. And I think the important part of that message was Arthur stood up for two things. He said, hey, you should not have outed me because I didn't deserve that in my role in the world does not put me should not put me in that spotlight. So he fought against himself being labeled an outed, and he fought against the stigmatization of aids around that time, as we all know, there was a great deal a great deal of hysteria. But his big message the message that I think is so important is that Arthur's said anybody can get involved and should speak out as he famously said to himself in sixty eight Arthur, you just can't sit and let the world go by that's his lasting message that his blueprint should serve as a blueprint for anybody else to get out and be involved in their own way, which takes us to today and Colin Kaepernick and the different ways that people can speak out. Even if they have to pay a price for it before we have to go Caitlin Thompson, speaking of athletes that are speaking out. I wonder by way of wrapping up the conversation where you see the social discussion going in tennis today. Imagine there's still plenty of room for progress. Serena Williams raised to do conversation about gender equity in tennis. What do you think is the big issue at the tennis world is going to have to deal with moving forward before? We gotta go gender is certainly the the one top on the list. They're still a disparity in equal pay most of the tournaments do not pay women and men equally. And I think yeah. I mean the treatment of every possible race under the sun is not equal. I'm conscious of the nineteen Seventy-three trip that Arthur ash took to Johannesburg to play the South African Open and visibility and deciding to in performing excellence in a place that was openly hostile how to change minds. And I think a lot of people see that trip is the beginning of the end for apartheid. You know, similar to what the conversations at a lot of our athletes are having now I am one hundred percent in support of people using their platforms to to have a dialogue visibility matters. And you know, for me, the Serena gate of the past weekend is less about who did something right or wrong and more about let's use this moment to reflect let's do better. Let's commission studies and let's make it. Equal.

"Ninety-three from aids at the age of forty nine and he's the subject of a new biography by professor Raymond Arsenault historian, especially of the south and civil rights movement. Professor Arsenault joins us now. Thank you for being with us. Professor, both my pleasure. Thanks for having me. I I just like to ask you, this is a massive achievement and a massive biography. It is one of those doorstop biographies about seven hundred fifty pages or more, including the notes in the context of the work. You've been doing for the last half century. On the civil rights movement on the second half of the twentieth century in the south in particular. We're does Arthur Ashe feed into your body of work. Well, I see I see the book as the third book and a trilogy. Of what really drew me to it originally was that? I thought it was a civil rights study that had been largely ignored by by historians. That's often the case with sort of the cultural side of civil rights much more attuned to the politics of the movement. But. Cultural figures had an enormous impact on changing patterns of race and race relations. And I think Arthur Ashe's, perhaps the classic example of that. So I did a book on the freedom riders. Nineteen sixty one which took me almost as long as the aspect come on almost nine years, and that was the first book on the freedom riders. And then I did a book on the Marian Anderson. The great black contralto classical singer who was turned away from constitution hall in nineteen thirty nine by the daughters of the American revolution. Because she was black. And she ended up the only place she was allowed to sing was at the Lincoln Memorial. And it became a great cultural moment, she was sort of the Jackie Robinson of classical music. And so I was looking I was looking for another sort of lost story, try to recapture it, and I'd always have fascination with our thrash, my best friend in graduate school. Was actually look very much like Arthur was same height way. Born the same year, he was my tennis partner. Name was Jim Horton story ended George Washington University who who died two years ago. You sort of introduced me to the cultivation all of all the other graduate students at Brandeis where we were studying and. And we haven't talked about doing a book together at one point. But sadly, he he he died two years ago, but I- I- persevered. I'm not sure he thought I would ever finish it and Sally he didn't live to see it. But I'm glad that I did persevere 'cause I the deeper I got into the project the more. I was convinced that Arthur ash was truly one of the great Americans of the twentieth century that it's it's one of the short sports story. He really like Ali, of course, transcended sports in so many ways we speaking with Raymond Arsenault about his new book, Arthur ash a life. And when you say that he is one of the great American's, we've produced what leads you to say about a guy who most people think of as a tennis player a great tennis player. A pioneering tennis players the first African American male to win a major tournament. But there has to be obviously much more to it than that. I think there is I found him to be very complex figure on the outside. He was cool and calm and always civil and a paragon of sportsmanship. Chip. And he always seemed to say the right thing and do the right thing. But inside he was very turbulent. And he was very driven at least from nineteen sixty eight on he became politicized that year partially out of the assassination of Dr king and Bobby Kennedy, but also dealing with the changing nature of American race relations. He'd like a like a lot of young athletes he'd been pretty self absorbed. He was particularly vulnerable and didn't feel he could really speak out or take any risks sick. He was the only black and the game of tennis. And you didn't want to ruin it for future black players by acting out or doing anything anything wrong. But once he once he turned to activism in ninety sixty eight he he never looked back, and he was involved in so many causes and some of it was behind the scenes people never even realize what all that he was doing, but he was incredibly generous with his time. And he was the I think one of the few maybe the only American athletes who was. A true, public intellectual. He was always deliberative thoughtful everything he said or did was based to some degree on research. He was widely read, you know, he was he was he didn't fit the stereotype of a of a jock. And then there are others who didn't as well. But I don't think anyone took it quite as far as he did know he was compulsive about doing the New York Times crossword puzzle every day, he collected first editions he corresponded with philosophers and other scholars, and it was a real truth teller and a truth seeker. And he was so independent minded. That's why I've often said that you know, the the word unique is overused. But I think in an Arthur Ashe's case, it it is it's fitting he there's no one else quite quite quite like him. But it was I think the the thing that strikes struck me so much when I was doing my research was the passion. That he he kept hidden largely. But he was a driven man. I think in many respects he took the way to the world on his shoulders. You know, all the inner city clinics that he did all the things that he never really expected to get any credit for this extraordinary generosity of spirit. And there's so many stories when he was working with the kids and these tweets clinics, and they would come and tell them he had a he had an unemployment he had to leave. And he just wouldn't he made those kids feel like they were the most important people in the world. And he he he would go on and on our after our, and of course, his work with South Africa, combating apartheid and representing Haitian boat people in the early nineteen nineties when the Bush administration seemed to be so prejudicial against them and getting arrested in front of the White House. And so even though he was cool and calm and collected. He was a risk taker he was a risk taker on the court he was known as perhaps the most exciting player Jose era, not exciting in the sense of personality as McEnroe and Connors and the others, but exciting in terms of his willingness to to go for the great the great shot even at the expense of winning. You probably would've would've won. He wanted fifty one tournaments, but he could won. I think many more if he had been just about winning. But he was never just about winning. Now, he was about the process, and he was that way not only on the court, but in in in life, generally, he always, you know, just was so so passionate I guess is the word I would use about. About being the best possible person. He could be and for the last twenty five years of his life. He never stopped in that in that endeavor. We're speaking with Raymond Arsenault, professor of history university of south Florida about his new book, Arthur ash, a life definitive biography of the great Arthur ash, we'll be back in our next segment with more from our conversation with professor Arsenault coming up on the sporting life.

She was sort of the Jackie Robinson of classical music, and so I was looking, I was looking for another sort of lost story, try to recapture it. And I'd always had a fascination with Arthur Asha. My best friend in graduate school was actually look very much like Arthur was same heightened way born the same year. He was my tennis partner. He name was Jim Horton is story in George Washington University who who died two years ago, GM sort of introduced me to the cultivation. All all the other graduate students at Brandeis where we were studying and and we even talked about doing a book together at one point. But sadly, he, he, he died two years ago, but I- I persevered, I'm not sure he thought I would ever finish it and Sally. He didn't live to see it, but I'm glad that I did persevere. 'cause I, the deeper, I got into the project. The more I was convinced that are thrash was truly one of the great Americans of the twentieth century that it's it's more than a short a sports story. He really like Ali, of course, transcended sports in so many ways. We sneaking with Raymond Arsenault about his new book Arthur, ash a life. And when you say that he is one of the great American's we've produced what leads you to say that guy who most people think of, as you know, a tennis player, a great tennis player, a pioneering tennis players, the first African American male to win a major tournament. But there has to be obviously. Much more to it than that. I think there is. I found him to be very complex figure, you know, on the outside, he was cool and calm and always civil and paragon of sportsmanship. And he always seemed to say the right thing and do the right thing. But inside he was very turbulent and he was very driven at least from nineteen sixty eight on. He became politicized that year partially out of the assassinations of Dr king and Bobby Kennedy, but also dealing with the changing nature of American race relations. He'd like a like a lot of young athletes. He'd been pretty self absorbed and he was particularly vulnerable and didn't feel he could really speak out or take any risks. He was the only black in the game of tennis, and he didn't want to ruin it for future black players by acting out or doing anything, anything wrong..

"What about night games in the lighting stadium, leading the challenges, anything that easier? It's easier now it used to be before digital. Nobody would shoot the night matches unless it was a huge match. You might have an Agassi Sampras match and used to. Well, of course, we're going to shoot that we don't care what the light is, you know, but even then, I mean, again, you've gotta shoot fast shutter speeds. You'd have to get. I mean, but the the standard was he would shoot Fuji press eight hundred push to stops and it looked not good. You know, like eight hundred speed film. And you know, but that's the best you can do now. I mean, the cameras are are so good and the lights are better. So that combination. I mean, I'm still kind of pushing the limited the camera, but I can go out there and shoot it ISO sixteen hundred. You know what the good camera like the defy and in get crisp images that look good on a glossy color page and the program and still get a decent shutter speed. The lights are better. What? What kind of lights are they? Are you dealing with color Castelo switching, tally diesel or anything, frankly, ever to imaging. I haven't heard anything about the the lightning changing. I will say that the the tricky thing with the light at Arthur Ashe stadium is that for some reason, you can't see it to the naked eye, but the corners are darker. So as a photographer, you see, because all of a sudden this photo looks half stop dark. But as a fan, I would be surprised if any fan noticed it. The question about the. I guess the editorial side of it when when you want to go and get a photo published, do they look for? Let's say Serena makes a great, you know, winning shot and but you have a great shot of her from earlier in the match. Do they care that that that you didn't get the winning shot? Because I know in other sports, you may have a great shot of somebody doing somebody from earlier in the game, but if it's not the, you know, the news worthy moment of it that photos not going to get published that played on tennis the same way. It depends on the client bit, depends on the media outlet, what they're they're looking for. Sports Illustrated might be very interested in that winning shot the the people I shoot for science on shoot a lot for the US TA in for the US Open program and does a book company. I do a lot of work for now world tennis magazine. Some websites they're more interested in having a pretty photo they wanna photo over the player looks good, especially the US open because this is the premier event, and this is the showcase of every. Thing they do. So they want the player to look good. And one of the interesting parts of that is they have to look fundamentally sound. So you know, you shoot a player like Venus Williams, who's incredibly athletic and make some shots that you can't believe, you know that should makes..
