Mike Davies has just been elected to the International Tennis Hall of Fame. Currently Mike is the CEO of the New Haven Open tennis tournament, so its great to see him getting some more recognition within tennis.

The 76-year-old Davies is credited with bringing about the first major network television broadcast of a tennis tournament, introducing colored clothing to a pro tour, and was the first to put chairs on the court during changeovers.

Davies was elected as a contributor to the game. The rest of the class of 2012 will be announced in the next month.
