Lee Couillard, Head Tennis Professional, Punahou School interviews Jim Osborne Jr., '69 Grad, Punahou School and his father Jim Osborne Sr. Jim was a former Davis Cup Player.

Hawaii's greatest tennis player was a late-bloomer, Punahou graduate Jim Osborne Jr. had many interests in high school, but once he made up his mind to pursue tennis, success was his. The U.S. Tennis Association from 1968 to 1970 ranked him among America's top ten singles players. In doubles competition he was ranked in the top ten eight times. He was Hawaii's first player to compete at Wimbledon, and the first to be named to the U.S. Davis Cup team. He defeated the world's best players during his career, including Arthur Ashe, John Newcombe, Roy Emerson, and Stan Smith. Him made eight appearances at the U.S. Open. In 1966 he also became the first Hawaii athlete to compete in any sport at the Madison Square Garden in New York. But despite all of titles, Jim was not the winningest player in Island history. That title goes to his mother Muriel, who by 1971 had over two hundred trophies!
