Two-time Grand Slam singles champion and Hall of Famer Vic Seixas has died, according to the International Tennis Hall of Fame. He was 100.

The Hall said Seixas died Friday but it didn’t disclose a cause of death.

Seixas won the 1953 Wimbledon and 1954 U.S. Championships (now the U.S. Open) during a career that saw him reach No. 1 in 1954. Overall, Seixas won 15 Grand Slam titles, including five in doubles and eight in mixed doubles.

He was the oldest living Grand Slam champion and Hall of Famer.

Seixas played in his final U.S. Open in 1969 at age 45.

Seixas had a 38-17 record in Davis Cup play and was a three-time Davis Cup captain. He went 24-12 in singles and 14-5 in doubles and was part of the 1954 winning team.

Seixas was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1971.
