Goran Ivanisevic Biography

Goran Ivanisevic is a retired Croatian professional tennis player. He is the only person to win the men's singles title at Wimbledon as a wildcard. He turned professional in 1988 and later that year, with Rudiger Haas, won his first career doubles title in Frankfurt, but he focused more on his singles career, yet had some success in doubles. Ivanisevic made his first significant impact on the tour in 1990, knocking Boris Becker out of the first round of the French Open men's singles. Ivanisevic also won his first tour singles title in 1990 at Stuttgart and helped Yugoslavia win the World Team Cup. He played in eight ties for Yugoslavia in the Davis Cup before quitting the team. In 1992, Ivanisevic steamrolled his way to reach his first Wimbledon singles final but eventually ended up losing to Andre Agassi. Later that summer at the Olympic Games in Barcelona, Ivanisevic won bronze medals in both singles and doubles representing Croatia. He added four more singles titles to his profile that year. In 1995, Ivanisevic won the Grand Slam Cup, beating Todd Martin in the final. Based on his impressive performance and statistics, he was awarded a number of plaudits. He received the BBC Sports Personality of the Year Overseas Personality Award. The 2001 Wimbledon title was the last of Ivanisevic's career.
