Andrés Gómez Santos (born February 27, 1960, in Guayaquil, Ecuador) is an Ecuadorian former professional tennis player, best known for winning the Men's Singles title at the French Open in 1990.

Career

Gómez turned professional in 1979. Early success in his career came mainly in doubles competition. He won five doubles titles in 1980, and seven in 1981.

In 1986, Gómez attained the World No. 1 doubles ranking. He won seven doubles events that year, including the US Open men's doubles title (partnering Slobodan Živojinović). Gómez won a second Grand Slam men's doubles title in 1988 at the French Open (partnering Emilio Sánchez).

His first top-level singles title came in 1981 in Bordeaux. He then won the Italian Open in 1982, beating Eliot Teltscher in the final (6–2, 6–3, 6–2), and again in 1984, when he defeated Aaron Krickstein in four sets (2–6, 6–1, 6–2, 6–2).

The crowning achievement of Gómez's career came in 1990 when he reached his first (and only) Grand Slam singles final at the French Open. There he faced 19 year-old Andre Agassi who, like Gómez, was playing in his first Grand Slam singles final. The up-and-coming American star was considered the favourite, but Gómez seized the moment and claimed the title with a four-set win (6–3, 2–6, 6–4, 6–4). Gómez reached his career-high singles ranking of World No. 4 later that year.

Over the course of his career, Gómez won 21 singles and 33 doubles titles. His last singles title was won in 1991 in Brasília. His final doubles title came in 1992 in Barcelona.

Path to the French Open title

Gomez had to defeat the following people in order to win the Grand Slam French Open title over Agassi.
