Raúl Ramírez (born 20 June 1953) is a retired Mexican professional tennis player. He was active during the 1970s and 1980s, and is regarded as one of the great all-around players of the modern era.[citation needed] Ramírez was also the first player to finish first in both singles and doubles Grand Prix point standings, accomplishing the feat in 1976. He attended and played tennis at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles.[1]

Personal life[edit]

Ramirez was born in Ensenada, Baja California. In 1981, he married the Venezuelan-born former Miss Universe Maritza Sayalero. The couple lives in Ensenada and has three children: Rebecca (born 1982), Raúl (born 1984), and Daniel Francisco (1989).

Career[edit]

Ramirez was ranked as high as World No. 4 (achieving this ranking on 7 November 1976) and he is one of the all-time leading doubles winners, having spent 61 weeks ranked World No. 1 in doubles, beginning 12 April 1976. He won 19 singles titles, including titles at the ATP Masters Series events in Rome (1975) and Monte Carlo (1978).

He won 60 doubles titles, including Wimbledon (1976), the French Open (1975 & '77), and at ATP Masters Series events in Cincinnati (1978), Canada (1976, ’77 & ’81), Monte Carlo (1979), Paris (1977), and Rome (1974, ’75, ’76 & ’77). He won the WCT World Doubles twice in 1975 and 1980.

He played tournaments of the two world tennis circuits played at the time, the Grand Prix tennis circuit and the World Championship Tennis (WCT). These circuits were predecessors of the Association of Tennis Professionals Tour (ATP Tour).
