The bust commemorates tennis player, Ken McGregor (1929 - 2007) who won the Men's Singles title at the Australian Championship (now known as the Australian Open) in 1952.

He and his longtime doubles partner, Frank Sedgman are generally considered one of the greatest men's doubles teams of all time and won the doubles Grand Slam in 1951. McGregor was also a member of three Australian Davis Cup winning teams in 1950–1952.
