Biography

Eddie Dibbs (born February 23, 1951) is a retired American tennis player also nicknamed "Fast Eddie". He attained a career-high singles ranking of world no. 5 in July 1978.

Dibbs holds the record number of ATP tour wins for a player who never reached a Grand Slam final. He did reach two semifinals, both at Roland Garros, losing to Guillermo Vilas in 1975 and to Adriano Panatta in 1976. His most significant victory was defeating Jimmy Connors 1–6 6–1 7–5 in London on carpet.

Dibbs played doubles with Harold Solomon. In 1976 they were ranked No. 4 worldwide, and they were among the top ten in 1974, 1975, and 1976. They were nicknamed "The Bagel Twins."
