Tim Chisholm (born October 31, 1969) is a semi-retired American real tennis player. He is Racquets Director at The Tuxedo Club in Tuxedo Park, New York.


A former lawn tennis player,[1] Chisholm switched to the original game of tennis around the year 2000.[citation needed] He became the head professional at the Racquet and Tennis Club in New York City.[2] In 2001, he won the first World Doubles Championship, partnered by Julian Snow.[citation needed] Although technically not a Grand Slam, at one point in 2003 Chisholm held all four major open titles at the same time.[citation needed]

Chisholm challenged former World Champion Robert Fahey three times for the singles title. The 2002 challenge was the closest, going the full 13 sets.[citation needed] In 2004, Chisholm lost the challenge 7–1 sets.[citation needed] He then retired as head professional at the Racquet Club and took an office job in Boston, Massachusetts, only playing in American tournaments.[citation needed] In January 2006, he decided to attempt the World Challenge again, and although he won his preliminary matches handily, he fell to Fahey 7–0 in the championship.[citation needed]

On June 7, 2015, Chisholm and doubles partner Camden Riviere defeated World Doubles champions, Australians Robert Fahey and Steve Virgona.[3]
