Ken Flach, who won four Grand Slam titles in men's doubles and two in mixed doubles, has died, according to the ATP World Tour and International Tennis Federation. He was 54.

The ATP World Tour announced Tuesday that Flach died Monday night in California after a brief illness.

In a posting on Facebook, Flach's widow, Christina, wrote: "The love of my life, Ken Flach, passed away after fighting pneumonia and septic."

Flach reached No. 1 in the men's doubles rankings and paired with Robert Seguso to form one of the world's top teams in the 1980s.

They won 28 titles together, including major championships at the U.S. Open in 1985 and Wimbledon in 1987 and 1988. Flach and Seguso also collected a gold medal for the United States at the 1988 Seoul Olympics.

Flach won the 1993 U.S. Open men's doubles title with Rick Leach.
