Exhibition Set: Chang and Goldstein

Michael Chang, the 1989 French Open Singles Champion, and Paul Goldstein, a three time singles champion at the USTA Boys 18s & 16s National Championships will play exhibition matches during this year’s tournament. The Rx Optical/Greenleaf Trust and Greenleaf Hospitality Exhibition is slated for Friday, August 7 at 7:30 p.m. at Stowe Stadium on the campus of Kalamazoo College.

The two will play one set against each other. They will also play doubles against the top junior team.

Not only did Chang win the French Open, he was also the Boys’ 18s National Singles Champion in 1987. Michael has earned 34 career singles titles and was inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame last year.

Goldstein is often referred to as “the Crash Davis of tennis” after the baseball catcher in the film “Bull Durham”. Goldstein set the all-time record for career USTA Pro circuit titles: 26. But he’s known locally for being the first player in 45 years to become a repeat singles champion at the Boys Nationals. In all, Goldstein captured 3 straight National Junior titles, (16s 1992, 18s 1993 & 1994).

Tickets for the Rx Optical/Greenleaf Trust and Greenleaf Hospitality Exhibition are $15.00 for adults and $10.00 for kids and are available by downloading an order form under the "Tickets" sidebar item on this website or by calling the Nationals office at 269-337-7343.
