Hans Nusslein turned pro at a young age. By the end of the 1920s he was playing in the small number of European tournaments that existed. Nusslein was brought over by Bill Tilden to the U. S. to play the World Championship Series in 1932. Nusslein was a baseliner who made few errors. Though he lost the World Championship Series to Tilden, Nusslein won the U. S. Pro in 1934 (beating Ellsworth Vines and Karel Kozeluh). He also won the French Pro in 1937 (over Tilden and Henri Cochet) and 1938 (over Tilden) and the British Pro in 1937 (over Tilden). Nusslein's pro career continued long after the war, by which time he was well into his forties.
