Tarango calls it a day

JEFF TARANGO, known for his 1995 Wimbledon walkoff, followed fellow-American tennis players Pete Sampras and Michael Chang into retirement at the US Open.

After being ousted in doubles, the 34-year-old winner of 14 ATP doubles crowns announced he was ending his career. His farewell lacked the Arthur Ashe Stadium sendoff which Grand Slam champions Sampras and Chang enjoyed.

Tarango's rant against umpire Bruno Rebeu and his wife Benedicte slapping the French official, were the talk of the All-England Club eight years ago.
