THE REYES FAMILY

Author:

The five Reyeses of Mexico have made tennis a family game and a championship one at that. The family went down in tennis history when two of its members won the U.S. men's and women's junior titles within the course of a year. Esteban Jr., 18, upper right, won the junior title this summer dropping only one set in seven matches, and his 16-year-old sister, Rosa Maria, lower right, whipped the U.S. gals in 1954. The coach: their dad, a former Mexican Davis Cup star and now the pro at the Chapultepec Club.
