When was the last surprise US Open champion?
Unlike the Australian Open (Johansson), French Open (Costa) or Wimbledon (Stich), the US Open has always required a player of top caliber to claim its title. So true is it, that the last non-Hall of Famer to win in NYC was perhaps in 1963 when Rafael Osuna was champion. Don't believe us? Check it. Of course we assume Lleyton Hewitt will enter the Hall, as will Marat Safin. Bottom line: The next US Open champ will not be an unknown!
