ZIMBABWE women’s tennis legend Cara Black has taken a lead in the poll to be inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame.

Black is among a star-studded list of nominees named on Friday for induction into tennis’ global Hall of Fame this year alongside Grand Slam winners Ana Ivanovic, Flavia Pennetta, Carlos Moya, Lisa Raymond, and Juan Carlos Ferrero.

According to the latest poll, Black is in the lead followed by Pennetta and Ivanovic.

The 42-year-old tennis legend, who comes from a tennis family in which her father Don and brothers Byron and Wayne were all tennis players, is the first Zimbabwean to be nominated for a place in the International Tennis Hall of Fame.

Fan voting for the International Tennis Hall of Fame began Friday at vote.tennisfame.com and ends on October 31.

The top three will receive bonus percentage points for their total count.

Balloting by journalists, historians, and members of the Hall of Fame will happen in the coming months.

The inductees will be announced in early 2021, with the Hall of Fame ceremony scheduled for July 16. – @innocentskizoe
