Courier won a pair of French and Australian Open singles titles in the early 1990s when he became the first American to reach the No. 1 ranking since McEnroe in 1985. Courier was also the youngest player to reach all four major singles finals in a career when he reached the Wimbledon final in 1993 at age 22. He also guided the U.S. to Davis Cup titles in 1992 and 1995 and currently serves as the U.S. team captain.
Philippoussis rocked the tennis world with one of the most ferocious serves the game has seen that earned him the nick-name of “Scud.” He reached the final of the U.S. Open in 1998, falling to Patrick Rafter, and at Wimbledon in 2003, losing to Roger Federer. He also helped Australia win the Davis Cup in 1999 and 2003.
