Adrian Quist

Hall of Fame

Inducted into the Australian Tennis Hall of Fame in May 1998; inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame in 1984.

Best known as one half of the successful doubles duo 'Bromwich and Quist', Adrian Quist showed he was a talented singles player as well, winning three Australian titles. Quist won 10 successive Australian doubles titles - a record that still stands today. The last eight of those he won with John Bromwich, while the first two were secured with Don Turnbull.

With an all-court game and sharp volleys, Quist was also an important member of Australia's Davis Cup team. He played important roles in the 1939 championship team, winning the doubles with Bromwich and then winning his reverse singles rubber in five sets against American great Bobby Riggs. His Davis Cup record was 43 wins from 56 rubbers.
