Peter Doohan

Peter Doohan (born May 2, 1961 in Newcastle, New South Wales) is a former tennis player from Australia, who won one singles title (1984, Adelaide) and five doubles titles during his career. The righthander reached his highest singles ATP-ranking on August 3, 1987, when he became the number 43 of the world.

He is best known for shockingly ousting two-time defending champion and top-seeded Boris Becker from the second round of Wimbledon in 1987.
