Tennis Mourns the Loss of Bud Collins
Bud Collins, our sport's walking encyclopedia of tennis, has passed away at the age of 86. Many of us were touched by Bud's cheerful ways, delighted by his stories and proud to be in his circle. As the tributes pour in, words cannot express the deep feeling of loss for this legend of tennis. The team here at NorthEast Tennis was fortunate to know and work with Bud and to call him our friend. We, along with so many others, are deeply saddened by his passing.
