  Kevin Curren - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Kevin Melvyn Curren (born March 2, 1958 in Durban, South Africa) is a former professional tennis player.
Curren played college tennis for the University of Texas at Austin in the United States and won the NCAA singles title in 1979.
In 1983, Curren reached his first Grand Slam semi-final at Wimbledon, losing to unseeded New Zealander Chris Lewis in a dramatic five-set match 6-7, 6-4, 7-6, 6-7, 8-6, that was noteworthy for allowing Lewis to become only the seventh unseeded player to ever reach the Wimbledon final.

The two biggest critics were Germany's captain Carl-Uwe Steeb and former player Kevin Curren, who is a team selector and television commentator.
Curren claimed both Wayne Ferreira, in his match against Tommy Haas on Friday, and the doubles combination of David Adams and Ellis Ferreira, in their rubber against Boris Becker and David Prinosil, did not use the correct tactics.
Ferreira, said Curren, should have been more aggressive and not play Haas from the baseline, while the doubles duo had failed to target Prinosil, who he saw as the weaker player on the court.

 No Love Lost Between South Africa, Slovakia in Davis Cup
Hrbaty is not at home on the low-bouncing grasscourts, so much so that speculation is that Slovak captain Miloslav Mecir may pull The Dominator from the singles altogether, instead electing to go with the two Karols, Karol Kucera and Karol Beck.
South African captain Kevin Curren, a former Wimbledon finalist, is playing hardball from the get-go with the choice of surface and an iron fist with the practice times.
Curren says the extra-softness of the court is due to the rain, but Mecir is calling his bluff and saying the bounce is unnaturally low, so much so that it doesn't make for a fair contest, inferring he may be making a phone call to International Tennis Federation (ITF) officials.
