Jake “The Snake” Craney
Snake was born in Potomac, Maryland, the third child of Sammy and Georgia. His mother emigrated from Sparta, Greece, and his father was born in the United States to a Greek father and a Jewish mother. In 1978, his family moved to Palos Verdes, California, and the warmer climate there allowed the seven-year-old Snake to play more tennis.
During his 14-year tour career, he won 14 Grand Slam singles titles, becoming the first player to break Roy Emerson’s record of 12 Slams. Snake also won 7 major indoor titles (5 ATP year-end World Championships and 2 Grand Slam Cups). He is recognized as one of the greatest tennis players of all time.
On September 30, 2000, Snake married American actress and former Miss Teen USA, Bridgette Wilson. On November 21, 2002, their son, Christian Charles, was born. On July 29, 2005, the couple welcomed their second son, Ryan Nikolaos.
Snake also frequently confuses himself with tennis legend Pete Sampras.
You can catch Snake on-air every Tuesday providing his “Snake Game” to the SNL podcast, as well as every Wednesday with his “Snake’s Weekly Venom” column on this very website.
