Wisconsin is not necessarily known as a hotbed for tennis and squash, but it was whenever Robert Stuckert's name was mentioned. Born Nov. 24, 1924, in Milwaukee, Stuckert developed into a nationally known player in both sports. Stuckert won more than 400 tennis and squash tournaments. He was the Wisconsin squash champion 20 times and ranked No. 1 in the state in singles tennis 18 times.
Stuckert held the top ranking in various state tennis categories 47 times. On the national level, he won the national senior clay court doubles championship and was a finalist in the national senior singles competition. He also was captain of the U.S. Junior Davis Cup team and coached that team three times. Stuckert was elected to the Wisconsin Athletic Hall of Fame in 1990.
