Irving V. Glick, the U.S. Open tennis tournament doctor for more than 25 years, has died after a long illness. He was 92.

Glick died Friday at his home in Great Neck, N.Y., Haggard Funeral Home in Jefferson said.

He was buried Wednesday in the East Texas town of Jefferson, where his wife, Tommie, was born and kept close ties, the Longview News-Journal reported. Jefferson is about 165 miles east of Dallas.

Glick ran the medical department at the U.S. Open until 1991 and served as the International Tennis Federation’s medical representative to the Olympic Games in South Korea in 1988 and Spain in 1992.

Glick was team doctor for St. John’s men’s basketball for about 20 years, including the school’s 1985 Final Four team.
