The gym, at least a new version of it, still exists in Miami Beach, with photos of Ali on the walls -- partly to pay homage to the past, partly to inspire the fighters who train there now.The one exception is Muhammad Ali.He met Ali for the first time in 1996 at the PGA Championship in Louisville, and Nicklaus said it's one of his favorite pictures.Spectators at the French Open men's final, many of them standing, have paid tribute to Muhammad Ali with a sustained bout of applause before the title match between Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray. A photo of Ali, who died Friday at age 74, was shown on the jumbo screen overlooking the Court Philippe Chatrier.
