The bust commemorates tennis player, Adrian Quist.

Adrian Quist grew up in Adelaide, South Australia, and once played Harry Hopman, but lost, having given Hopman a head start.  He was a three-time Australian Championships men's singles champion but is primarily remembered as a great doubles player.  He won the Australian doubles title 10 years in a row, the last eight together with John Bromwich, and he was also one of the winners of a "Career Doubles Slam". Quist was ranked World No. 3 in 1939 and World No. 4 in 1936.

He was inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame in 1984.

He also held the most Davis Cup victories by any Australian until Lleyton Hewitt surpassed that record on 18 September 2010 in Cairns.
