William H. "Bill" Hoogs, Jr. (1940 - 1978) was a tennis player from the United States.[1]

Career[edit]

Hoogs formed a strong doubles combination at UC Berkeley with Jim McManus. The pair were doubles runners-up at the 1961 NCAA Championships.[2]

Together with McManus, Hoogs won doubles titles at the 1961 National Hard Court Championships and the Canadian Open in 1962.[3]

As a singles player, Hoogs notably reached the fourth round at the 1965 French Championships and only narrowly missed out on a spot in the quarter-finals, losing to Toomas Leius 7-9 in the fifth set.[1]

Death[edit]

Hoogs had his leg amputated in 1968, after developing a malignant growth on his foot. The cancer claimed his life in 1978.[4]
