Former Roland Garros champion and World No. 2 Michael Chang was inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame on Saturday. Inducted posthumously were contributors Mark McCormack, the founder of International Management Group, and Eugene Scott, the founder, editor and publisher of Tennis Week magazine.
"I think any generation that follows our generation - it's tough to compete," he said. "As an athlete, I used my speed, agility and quickness to go out and play against the big guys."
Monica Seles, the former World No. 1 and nine-time Grand Slam champion, presented McCormack during the induction ceremony. McCormack, once dubbed the most powerful men in sport, was the founder, chairman and CEO of IMG and died in May 2003.
Scott was a former US Davis Cup player, promoter, tournament director, executive, agent and attorney, who founded the magazine Tennis Week in 1974. He was presented by three-time Wimbledon champion and former No. 1 John McEnroe.
