Re: Chang


Coming from the juniors as a 15-year-old, Michael Chang set numerous "youngest player records." In 1987, he was the youngest player to win a main draw match at the U.S. Open and the youngest to reach a Tour semifinal. Becoming the youngest French Open / Grand Slam Champion ever in 1989, he then became the youngest to rank in the Top 5. Chang ended an American drought of the French Open, becoming the first American male to win the French Open since 1955. In 1991 he reached the quarterfinals or better in 13 tournaments. On the court, Michael's real strength is his return game. Chang is considered one of the fastest players on the circuit, possessing an all-court game.
