Michael Chang was the youngest man in history to win a singles major, winning the 1989 French Open at 17 years and 109 days old. Chang won a total of 34 top-level professional singles titles, (including seven Masters titles) was a three-time major runner-up, and reached a career-best ranking of world No. 2 in 1996. Since he was shorter than virtually all of his opponents, he played a dogged defensive style utilizing his quickness and speed.

In 2008, Chang was inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame. He began coaching Key Nishikori in 2014.

Michael Chang holds the distinction of being the youngest male player to win a major championship, winning the French Open title in 1989, at 17-years, 109 days old.

Chang was months away from turning 18 when he defeated Stefan Edberg to win his major title, which sent ripples throughout the tennis world, but no one should have been surprised. Chang was a prodigious junior player, winning a slew of USTA Championships as a youngster playing in older age divisions. He won the Fiesta Bowl 16s when he was 13, the USTA Boys 18s Hardcourts when he was 15, and if you dig deep into the US Open record books, you�ll find that he became the youngest men�s player in history at age 15 years, 6 months to win a match in the main draw, defeating Paul McNamee in the first round. In 1988, at 16 years, 7 months, he won his first ATP tour title in San Francisco, defeating Johan Kriek.

Aligned at the time with a burgeoning group of young American players that included Pete Sampras, Andre Agassi, and Jim Courier, it was the 5-foot-6 dynamo Chang who became the first to win a major singles title. Chang may not have been odds makers� first choice, but he topped Sampras (US Open, 1990), Agassi (Wimbledon, 1992), and Courier (French, 1991) as the quickest to place his name in history as a major championship.
