Santoro, who is currently ranked No. 68 in the world, would become the only man in tennis history to compete in Grand Slam competition during four different decades.
Beginning his Grand Slam journey at the 1989 French Open, Santoro’s best Major performance ironically came in Australia in 2006, when he made the quarterfinals.
