Robert Lansdorp

Robert Lansdorp, arguably the most successful coach in modern tennis history, has coached Tracy Austin, Lindsey Davenport, Pete Sampras, and Maria Sharapova all to the #1 spot in the rankings. Haven’t heard of him? Not surprising. Lansdorp is known for saying “All I need is an open court and a bucket of balls”, and unlike many of his peers, he is famously not known for having a huge tennis academy.

In this edition of Tennis Channel Academy we take you back to the basics and into the world of tennis’s lone wolf, Robert Lansdorp. Enjoy his down-to-earth approach and fascinating ability to turn everyday players into champions.
