If you want to find the answer to the crossword puzzle question:
“Jeff, a former tennis player from the United States known for his antics and disqualified from Wimbledon in 1995.”
Then you have come to the right place and we will help you with the answer.
Jeffrey Gail (“Jeff”) Tarango, born November 20, 1968, is a retired American tennis player. He is currently director of tennis at the Jack Kramer Club, just south of Los Angeles.
Most fans think of tennis as one of the most intelligent sports in which players very rarely pull any pranks. But exactly 25 years ago, Wimbledon was the scene of a passion that could hardly be compared with anything before or since. On July 1, 1995, American tennis player Jeff Tarango and his wife, Benedict, put on a show.
Jeff Tarango, during a third-round singles match at Wimbledon, accused chair umpire Bruno Rebeau of corruption and left the court, and his wife slapped the umpire.
Tarango’s career could hardly be called a success by the standards of professional tennis. He never rose above 42nd place in the world rankings and won only two singles tournaments. At Grand Slam tournaments, the American has never made it past the third round. Tarango was slightly more productive in doubles, winning 14 titles and even reaching the Roland Garros final by the end of his career.
