Tennis Match and Post-Game Interview

A news clip from WSLS-TV in Roanoke shows part of a tennis match between Arthur Ashe and the Spaniard Manuel Santana, followed by a post-game interview with the two professional players and with Ashe's early coach, Dr. Walter Johnson. (Sound does not begin until 41 seconds into the clip.)  The match was held on August 21, 1965, as part of a tournament in Lynchburg to honor Dr. Johnson, a local physician and tennis coach. Santana defeated Ashe that day 13–11.
