Talking with Tracy Austin

Tracy Austin was the definition of a tennis prodigy, with the former WTA No. 1 still holding records as both the youngest US Open women's champion (16) and youngest inductee into the International Tennis Hall of Fame. Today, Austin stays involved with tennis professionally as a commentator - and also as the parent of three boys who have all played tennis. Colette Lewis had the chance to talk with Austin at the Ojai in April on a wide range of topics. Story
