Tennis greatness

Today’s question: Tennis anyone? Who is the first player in the Open era, man or woman to amass over 150 titles in both singles and doubles?

Yesterday’s answer: Fenway Park in Boston is the oldest major league ballpark, After two rain delays, Fenway Park finally hosted its first professional baseball game on April 20, 1912. (The first official game played in Fenway actually occurred on April 9 when the Sox beat Harvard University, 2-0.) The Red Sox defeated the New York Highlanders, later known as the Yankees, before 27,000 fans,7-6 in 11 innings. The event would have made front page news had it not been for the sinking of the Titanic only a few days before.
