Professional tennis

Stark turned professional in 1991 and joined the ATP Tour.[1] In 1992, he won his first tour doubles title at Wellington. His first top-level singles title came in 1993 at Bolzano (beating Cédric Pioline in the final).

In 1994, Stark captured the men's doubles title at the French Open, partnering Byron Black (the pair were also runners-up at the Australian Open that year). He reached his career high singles ranking of World No. 36 in February.[1] The following year, Stark won the Wimbledon mixed doubles title, partnering Martina Navratilova.

Stark won his second top-level singles title in 1996 at Singapore (beating Michael Chang in the final). He was a member of the 1997 U.S. Davis Cup team.[2] In 1997, Stark won the doubles title at the ATP Tour World Championships, partnering Rick Leach. The final doubles title of Stark's career came in 2001 at Long Island.
