Salute to Katrina Adams

Congressman Danny K. Davis has partnered with Chicago Park District, Introspect Youth Services, Inc. and the Dr. Martin Luther King Boys and Girls Club to Salute Ms. Katrina Adams, President United States Tennis Association (USTA). This Salute will be held Friday, March 20, 2015, 6:00pm at the Garfield Park Conservatory, 300 N. Central Park Ave., Chicago, Illinois.

Ms. Adams is the first African American to serve as USTA President. Katrina was Illinois High School Association’s Single Tennis Champion while attending Whitney Young High School. She was National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) All American, while leading Northwestern University Wildcats to the Big Ten Championships in both 1986 and 1987. From 1988 to 1999, Katrina played on the Women’s Tennis Association’s Tour, where her best Grand Slam Singles result was making it to the Fourth Round in the 1988 Wimbledon Championships, losing to Chris Evert. Katrina was ranked #67 in Singles in 1987. In 1989, she was ranked eighth in the world in Doubles. During her 12 year professional career, Katrina captured 20 Double titles.

Born in Chicago, Illinois, Katrina joined a tennis program at the age of six on Chicago’s Westside in Garfield Park. Although she has played tennis on every continent in the world, Katrina still calls Chicago her home. Her parents James and Yvonne Adams, who are retired Chicago Public School Educators, resides in the East Garfield Park Community. Therefore, it is a fitting tribute for Katrina Adams to be saluted by her community, while at the same time re-energizing tennis in Chicago.
