British-Canadian former Tennis star Greg Rusedski was renowned on the tour for having one of the biggest serves around, holding the world record of 149mph for many years. Turning professional in 1991, Greg enjoyed a sixteen year career, representing both Canada and the UK during his time on court. Reaching the status of British No.1 in both 1997 and 1999, Greg was a consistent and high performing Tennis star who was part of one of the golden eras of men’s tennis.
Winning his first singles tournament at the Hall of Fame championship in Rhode Island in 1993, Rusedski went on to reach the singles final of the US Open in 1997, narrowly losing to Pat Rafter in four sets. It was at this time that Greg reached his highest career ranking of fourth in the world.
