Tennis Great Michael Chang To Be Profiled In ESPN Films ‘30 For 30’ Documentary ‘American Son’

Exclusive: Tennis great Michael Chang, who became the youngest winner of a major tournament singles championship when he beat Ivan Lendl in the 1989 French Open at age 17, will be the subject of a ’30 for 30′ documentary by ESPN Films.

While that win turned out to be Chang’s only major title, he appeared in three more major finals and left an enduring mark competing against a formidable group of American contemporaries like Pete Sampras, Jim Courier and Andre Agassi. He had 34 wins on the Atp tour from 1988 to 2000 before retiring in 2003.

The film, titled American Son, has completed production. It is the directing debut of Jay Caspian Kang, a writer, podcaster and TV correspondent. Kang was a founding editor of Grantland, the now-defunct sports and pop culture digital brand launched by ESPN. He also contributed to Vice News Tonight during its run on HBO.
