    Paul Annaconehas been one of the world's leading tennis professionals for more than 25 years. Annacone currently coaches the men’s 17-time Grand Slam title holder and 2012 Wimbledon champion Roger Federer from the US, and is credited as the coach who guided tennis legend Pete Sampras to ten Grand Slam titles. He also coached world top-10 player Tim Henman (a silver medalist in men’s doubles at the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta).

    He was a three time All-American at the University of Tennessee from 1982-1984, before turning professional and joining the ATP Tour. Paul was named Newcomer of the Year on the Men’s Professional Tour in 1985 and from there went on to achieve a career high world ranking of # 3 in doubles and # 12 in singles. Paul was also elected by the players to be their representative on the Board of Directors of the ATP Tour along with Vice President of the Player’s Council.
    Annacone served as managing director of the United States Tennis Association’s (USTA) High Performance Division, and most recently was the head of men’s tennis at the Lawn Tennis Association in Great Britain. He is the senior instruction editor for TENNISMagazine.
