A Palm Desert man has been tabbed to represent the United States in international tennis team competitions in Croatia.
Palm Desert's James Nelson is the team captain for the Bitsy Grant Cup, a men's 75-and-over team competition.
The cup is named after Byron "Bitsy" Grant Jr., an American who played international tennis in the 1930s. At 5 feet 4 inches and 120 lbs, Grant was the smallest American man to win a championship on the international tennis circuit.
