Fans can cast their ballots at

Zimbabwe tennis legend Cara Black is yet again one of the seven nominees in the race for the International Tennis Hall of Fame after a failed bid in 2021.

Black was in the Class of 2022 ballot alongside Spaniards Juan Carlos Ferrero and Carlos Moyá; Ana Ivanović from Serbia, Italian Flavia Pennetta and Lisa Raymond of the United States which yielded no new inductees. Black is part of the Class of 2023 with other nominees from last year. The only new addition is Canadian Daniel Nestor who is a 12-time Grand Slam winner in doubles and mixed doubles.

The 43-year-old Black won 10-Grand Slams in doubles and mixed doubles and is a former world number one in doubles tennis while she is one of the only 3 women to have won a career Grand Slam in mixed doubles.

“The nine nominees to the Class of 2023 ballot for induction into the International Tennis Hall of Fame represent tennis’ greatest achievements across multiple disciplines of the sport,” chairperson of the ITHF Enshrinee Nominating Committee Katrina Adams said.

Black won the Fan vote last year while Flavia Pennetta and Ana Ivanovic were second and third place respectively but it did not guarantee her Hall of Fame induction.

A candidate has to receive an affirmative vote of 75% or higher from the combined results of the Official Voting Group and bonus percentage points earned in the Fan Vote and none of the nominees met the criteria.

The ITHF’s annual Fan Voting for the player category today and ends on October 30 with results set to be announced soon after.
