NEWPORT, R.I. (AP) -- Former top-five player Todd Martin has been selected as the next CEO of the International Tennis Hall of Fame & Museum.

Martin achieved a career-best ranking of world No. 4. He was a finalist at the 1999 U.S. Open and the 1994 Australian Open. He played on the U.S. Davis Cup team from 1994 to 2002, and helped the U.S. win the title in 1995. Martin won eight singles titles and four doubles titles.

"It is an honor to be charged with preserving the rich history of our sport and to celebrate the people who have created its greatest moments," he said.

He will succeed Mark L. Stenning, who is stepping down in September after 35 years with the organization and 14 years as CEO.

Martin will begin working at the Hall of Fame as CEO-designate on April 1, with Stenning remaining as CEO through Sept. 5.
