Biography

Michael Russell was ranked as America's number one Boys under-18 player in 1996 and studied at the University of Miami before turning professional two years later. His best performance at a Grand Slam came at the 2001 French Open where he reached the fourth round. He achieved a career high ranking of number 60 in the world in November 2007 and is one of the few tennis players to hold a college degree (Bachelors of Science in Business Administration, January, 2012).

20:24...But boy, it was a barrow-load of fun. I hope you enjoyed it even half as much as we did. Thank you for all your messages throughout, you've been the glue holding us together as the edges frayed amid the madness.
