Wheelchair tennis great David Hall was presented with an International Tennis Hall of Fame ring in a ceremony at the Australian Open last Monday night.

Hall won more than 80 events spanning a 15-year career that included nine Australian Opens and the singles gold medal at the 2000 Sydney Paralympics.

Hall, from Rockdale, was inducted into the Australian Tennis and International Tennis Hall of Fame’s in 2015 after retiring in 2006.

The personalised rings were introduced in 2011 and are to be presented to Hall of Famers at tennis events around the world over the next few years as a symbol of their International Tennis Hall of Fame induction.
