On this day in tennis history: Kriek vs Chang in a final

As mentioned on Twitter today by @ThisDayInTennis: “Oct. 2, 1988: Michael Chang, 16, beats @johankriek, 14 years his senior, 62 63 to win Transamerica Open in San Francisco.”

As we mentioned in a post before, Johan did get his revenge against Chang later on.

Last time the two players played a tournament together was in 2012 at the Champions Tour in Delray Beach, FL. Aaron Krickstein, Ivan Lendl, Michael Pernfors and Jimmy Arias were some of the other players competing in that event.
