Guillermo Perez Roldan

Guillermo Perez-Roldan is a former professional tennis player from Argentina.

Perez-Roldan was known particularly as a strong clay court player. He turned professional in 1986. Between 1987 and 1993, he won nine top-level singles titles. His best Grand Slam performance came at the 1988 French Open, where he reached the quarter-finals before being knocked-out by Andre Agassi.

He burst onto the scene as a teenager in 1988 by reaching the final of the Italian Open, where he battled Ivan Lendl in five grueling sets. Later that year, at the US Open, John McEnroe famously expressed outrage at being seeded significantly lower than Perez-Roldan, who had not yet won a match on hard courts. However, Perez-Roldan silenced critics by progressing further in the tournament than McEnroe.
