Newport, Rhode Island: The International Tennis Hall of Fame celebrated its golden anniversary on Saturday with a parade of tennis legends at Newport, Rhode Island. Fifty of the greatest players in tennis history received a royal welcome at the Hall of Fame. Under sparkling sunny skies, Prince Albert of Monaco introduced 47 Hall of Famers and the inductees of 2004, Steffi Graf, Stefan Edberg and Dorothy "Dodo" Cheney, to a sell-out crowd on the grass courts. Graf, Edberg and Cheney will be enshrined before the Hall of Fame final on Sunday. The players ranged in age from Gardnar Mulloy, aged 90, to the 35-year-old Steffi Graf. (AP)
