Today in Sports History: September 11

By Jonah Sharf

On September 11, 1994, tennis legend Andre Agassi won the first US Open championship of his career and the second major of his career. By winning the 1994 US Open, he became the first unseeded male player to win the US Open during the Open Era. Agassi wound up winning two US Open championships during his time in tennis, and eight Grand Slam championships. While he won two US Open titles, his most dominant tournament was the Australian Open, where he won four titles. He also holds the record for the longest match winning streak at the Australian Open with 26 consecutive from 2000 until 2004, as well as the best match winning percentage with 90.57% (48-5).
