Irvin Dorfman

Irvin Dorfman of Brooklyn, New York, was an outstanding amateur American tennis player in the 1940s and 1950s. Dorfman was ranked # 15 in singles in the United States in 1947, and # 3 in doubles in the U.S. in 1948. At the Cincinnati Masters, Dorfman reached the 1948 singles final, only to fall to Herbert "Buddy" Behrens in a match that lasted 64 games: 5-7, 9-11, 6-2, 8-6, 4-6. To this day, it is the longest final in games in the history of the Cincinnati tournament, which started in 1899 and is now the oldest tournament played in its original city in the United States. Dorfman also won the doubles title in 1948 in Cincinnati, partnering with future International Tennis Hall of Fame enshrinee Pancho Gonzalez. Dorfman played his collegiate tennis at Yale University. He graduated from that Ivy League school in 1947.
