Brad Gilbert has worked with some big names during his impressive coaching career the likes of Andre Agassi, Andy Roddick and Andy Murray to name but a few. As a player Gilbert reached a career high of No.4 in the world, and returns to the Academy where he was once a student himself.

I am really looking forward to the opportunity to go down to the Academy and start spending time with Nick and his staff. Nick has been an innovator in the industry for the last 30 years, and has many more great years ahead of him. It is truly an honour to get a chance to work with him, said Gilbert.

Brad brings a lifetime of tennis knowledge to the Academy and will make an incredible impact on all of our tennis students. His ability to coach is second-to-none, and when you combine that with his incredible energy, you have the complete package added Nick Bollettieri.

Gilbert will make his first
