He is a former professional tennis player from the United States. Borowiak’s professional tour on the ATP circuit was a relatively short one. He was present on the tour for just 10 years, during which time he won five singles titles and three doubles, reaching a career-high ATP singles ranking of World No. 20 in August 1977 after he won three singles titles in Dayton, Gstaad and Toronto. (His run in the last one was quite impressive, given that he was the 12th seed there and having benefited from a series of upsets, he paved his way to the final.)
Borowiak played number one singles on one of the greatest collegiate tennis team of all time for the UCLA Bruins. Haroon Rahim played number two singles, Jimmy Connors played at number three. Borowiak and Connors were NCAA champions, while Rahim remains the youngest player ever to represent his country in the Davis Cup competition.
Borowiak was ATP Comeback Player of the Year in 1981 after emerging as the runner-up in ATP Tampa and Johannesburg.
His best run in the Grand Slams came in Wimbledon and Australian Open, where he reached the fourth round.
Borowiak was inducted into the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) Hall of Fame.
