Excerpt: Kevin Melvyn Curren (born 2 March 1958 in Durban, South Africa) is a former professional tennis player. He played in two Grand Slam singles finals and won four Grand Slam doubles titles. Curren became a naturalized American citizen in April 1985. Curren played both tennis and cricket at Glenwood High School in Durban. At college he played tennis for the University of Texas at Austin in the United States and won the NCAA singles title in 1979. He turned professional later that year, and won his first top-level singles title in 1981 in Johannesburg. In 1983, Curren reached his first Grand Slam semi-final at Wimbledon, losing to unseeded New Zealander Chris Lewis in a dramatic five-set match 67, 64, 76, 67, 86, that was noteworthy for allowing Lewis to become only the seventh unseeded player to ever reach the Wimbledon final. In 1984, Curren powered his way through the draw and played Mats Wilander in the final of the Australian Open, after making a comeback from two sets down to defeat Ben Testerman in the semi-finals. Wilander won the match, played on the grass courts at Kooyong, in four sets 67, 64, 76, 62. In 1985, Curren reached the final at Wimbledon with the help of coaching from Tony Roche. En route to the final, he comprehensively defeated future champion Stefan Edberg in the fourth round 76, 63, 7-6; the then-World No. 1 John McEnroe in the quarter-finals 62, 62, 6-4. McEnroe had difficulty in dealing with Curren's highly individualistic and very fast serving, which emphasized deception and low skidding balls. He defeated World No. 3 Jimmy Connors in the semi-finals 62, 62, 61. He became the only player ever to defeat both McEnroe and Connors in the same Grand Slam tennis tournament. In the final he lost in four sets to Boris Becker 6. More: Books, , South-African-Male-Tennis-Players~~Books-LLC, , , , , , , , , , General Books LLC
