Matt Lucena - 1995 U.S. Open Mixed Doubles Champion

In 1990, Doug Eisenman and Matt Lucena added another milestone to Cal's esteemed tennis tradition, becoming the first team in collegiate history to claim the doubles Grand Slam. The pair finished the season with a career-best No. 1 ranking after winning the Volvo Collegiate, Rolex Indoor and NCAA doubles championships. Lucena then teamed with Bent-Ove Pedersen to capture a second NCAA title in 1991 before receiving an invitation to the '91 U.S. Open. The twosome shocked the tennis world by defeating eighth-seeded Luke Jensen and Laurie Warder en route to the tournament's quarterfinal round.

In 1995, Lucena once again proved himself to be a force on the professional tennis scene, as he brought home the U.S. Open mixed doubles championship with partner Meredith McGrath. The pair won their first-ever Grand Slam title in their first professional outing with a 6-4, 6-4 defeat of Cyril Suk and Gigi Fernandez.
