Biography

Béla VON KEHRLING

Béla von Kehrling played tennis at the 1912 and 1924 Olympics with no major distinction, but he was known as an all-around sportsman who competed in football, ice hockey, bobsledding, and table tennis. He played in the first table tennis World Championships in 1926, making the final of the doubles. He also played on the Hungarian team champions.

Von Kehrling was a 13-time Hungarian Champion in singles tennis, 11 times in doubles, and in 1924 won the German Championships in singles, losing in the 1925 final. He also won the Hungarian International title seven times (1924-27, 1929, 1931-32), a loss in the 1930 final keeping him from eight consecutive (there was no tournament in 1928). In 1933 he won the doubles and mixed at the Dutch Championships. From 1924-33, von Kehrling played 16 ties in Davis Cup, with a record of 25 wins and 21 losses. Von Kehrling later became vice-president of the Hungarian Tennis Association and was editor-in-chief of its magazine, Tennisz és Golf.
