American tennis player in the mid-20th century, who later became a winning college tennis coach.
Bartzen went on the American tennis circuit and was ranked in the top 10 nine straight years (1953–1961), two of them at No. 2 (1959 and 1960). He won four U.S. Clay Court Championships and won the Canadian National title in 1954. He served as co-captain of the U.S. Davis Cup team and won 15 singles matches.
After his playing career, Bartzen served 12 years as head tennis pro at Colonial Country Club in Fort Worth, Texas, where he hosted the Colonial National Invitational Tournament, before taking over the Texas Christian University program in 1974. His tennis teams were ranked nationally every year but one in a 20-year stretch.
Bartzen was inducted into the Texas Sports Hall of Fame in 1995.
