76-Year-Old Tennis Player Adds To His Golden Legacy

Tyler tennis player Russell Seymour has produced a stellar tennis career, winning 71 gold balls, representing national titles.  Make that 72.

Seymour won the doubles title at the USTA National Men's 75 Clay Court Championships in Arlington, Virginia this past week.  He would have made it 73 Gold balls, but a knee injury forced him to withdraw from the singles final.  He instead captured his 48th Silver ball.

Seymour hopes his knee is better in time to represent the U.S. at the World Team Championships in Turkey in October.
