Bio While a student at Columbia University, Oliver Campbell was the United States singles Champion for three years in succession. For over a century, Campbell had the honour of being the youngest male player to win the U.S. singles title. He did it as a 19 year, 6 months and 11 days old student in 1890. That record went to fellow American Pete Sampras, 19 years and 28 days, when he won the title in 1990.
The first American to start employing net-rushing tactics, he exploited his talent in the forecourt to capture three U.S. Doubles Championships. A New Yorker of considerable drive and determination, he garnered a top-ten American ranking five years in a row and was No. 1 from 1890-92 in singles.

Campbell was inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame in 1955.
