Andrei Pavel

Andrei Pavel (born January 27, 1974 in Constanţa) is a Romanian tennis player, who turned professional in 1990. He began playing tennis at age eight, and moved to Germany at age sixteen.

Pavel has won three singles titles, including the ATP Masters Series tournament in Montreal/Toronto in 2001. He has also won seven doubles titles, the latest title being the Open Seat Barcelona, in 2007.

Pavel played what John McEnroe considers to be the best first round match at a Grand Slam he's ever seen at the U.S Open in August 2006, where he lost to Andre Agassi in four tough sets; 6–7(4), 7–6(10), 7–6(6), 6–2; taking three and half hours. Had Pavel won, it would have been Agassi's last match in a professional tournament.

His best single result over the course of his career took place in 2001, when he captured the Masters Series title in Montreal. For his efforts during that week alone, Pavel earned US$400,000.
