Hall of Famer Ralston dies of cancer at 78

   Dennis Ralston, an International Tennis Hall of Famer, died of cancer today at 78 in Austin, Texas, where he lived.
   "It's a sad day as my former coach of six years, Dennis Ralston, has passed away," Chris Evert tweeted. "A deeply religious man, a devoted family man, and a superb player and coach.... he will be missed. RIP Dennis" 
   Ralston and Hall of Famers Pam Shriver, Rosemary Casals and Charlie Pasarell spoke at the Sutter Lawn Tennis Club's 100th anniversary gala in Sacramento, Calif., in September last year. Ralston, who underwent eight operations on each knee and had his lower left leg amputated in 2010, detailed his battle with opioid addiction.
