Todd Martin

Birthplace: Hinsdale, Illinois


Martin is one of the best ambassadors that tennis has ever known. His stellar career on Tour was highlighted by two Grand Slam finals and an 11-8 Davis Cup record over 16 ties. However, the lasting impression Todd walked away from the game with is an abiding respect for the sport as well as from his fellow competitors. In 1994 Todd was recognized by his peers with the Tour Sportmanship Award for the second consecutive year.

Career Highlights

Martin was a finalist at the 1999 U.S. Open and the 1994 Australian Open. In 1994 he also reached the semifinals at Wimbledon, the U.S. Open and the Grand Slam Cup.

He played Davis Cup for the United States every year between 1994 and 2002, including the winning team in 1995 where he partnered with Pete Sampras to win the doubles point.

Todd notched his highest rank in singles – No. 4 – in 1999, and was ranked as high as No. 30 in doubles (1996).
