From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Harold Humphrey Hackett (July 12, 1878–November 20, 1937) was an American tennis player.

Born in Hingham, Massachusetts, but a long-time resident of New York, Hackett turned in his best results in doubles with Fred Alexander. Beginning in 1905, they were finalists at the U.S. Nationals a record seven consecutive years, winning in 1907, 1908, 1909, and 1910.

A graduate of Yale University, Hackett and Princeton University graduate Alexander won the U.S. Indoor doubles three times (1906–08), and he teamed with Walter Hall to win the U.S. Clay Court doubles title in 1912.

The following year, 1913, he was player-captain of the U.S. Davis Cup team that beat the United Kingdom in the final to win the Cup.

Hackett was ranked in the U.S. Top Ten twice: in 1902 and at number seven in 1906 (when he was a U.S. quarterfinalist). He was inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame in 1961.
