Overview

In the French Open in 1989, a 17-year-old, Michael Chang, worked his way through the draw to the fourth round and ended up playing number one-seeded and three-time champion, Ivan Lendl. As the game progressed, the outlook was bleak for Chang, who lost the first two sets. However, he came back and won the second two to find himself serving at 4-3 in the fifth.

Then he did the unthinkable. He served underhand. Lendl was flustered, lost concentration, the crowd roared, and Chang went on to win the match.

This is just one of many amazing on-court stories of bravery, skill, luck and all that keeps us watching our favorite tennis stars time and time again.
