John McCurdy. tennis.com.au

SEPTEMBER 27, 2012, by Beeyong Sison - Tennis Australia has recently announced the appointment of former ATP Tour Pro John 'Macca' McCurdy of Australia as the new  Tennis World Academy Head Coach. 

 

McCurdy, who also headed the Coaching Staff of the world-renowned Australian Institute of Sports from 2002 until 2005, is now tasked to develop Tennis Australia's academy that will focus on innovative world-wide programs supportive of players' individualized holistic development including education and family life.

 

The highly experienced former player, who reached Wimbledon Singles Round of 16s in 1983 and attained a ranking of No.80 in the world, understands the difficulties of today's young talented players who dream of becoming top-tier tennis athletes. 

Tennis World Academy offers a comprehensive weekly program integrating players' schooling tapered with parents' work schedule, and travel necessities - on a full- or part-time and flexible basis - depending on current player needs.

World Class Program and Facility

Melbourne Park - home to the Australian Open, and the Tennis World Academy headed by John McCurdy. tennis.com.au

Based on McCurdy's vast playing and coaching experience, Tennis World Academy (TWA) offers a comprehensive weekly program which integrates players' schooling tapered with parents' work schedule, and travel necessities - on a full- or part-time and flexible basis - depending on current player needs.

 

Housed at Melbourne Park, site of the Australian Open, McCurdy's exciting new researched-based academy program will offer training sessions which include gym-work, on-court skills development on multiple surfaces - clay, hard-cushion, etc. TWA is also offering a program for private coaches complimentary to the current programs set-forth by Tennis Victoria development initiatives.

 

Most improved player on tour

 

'Macca', as he is widely-known, after finishing his tenure a student-athlete in Oklahoma City University in the US, first appeared in the Grand Slam events in 1982 at the Australian Open where he reached the 3rd round that included a win over former World No.6 Henrik Sundstrom of Sweden in the second round.

 

Considered as one of the most improved player on the tour, the following year in Wimbledon 1983 the big-serving Yarrawonga-native strung consecutive wins over highly heralded players namely Juan Avandano, Cassio Motta of Brazil, and Italian tennis legend Adriano Panatta losing only one set in three rounds in a best-of-five sets tournament format.

ABOVE: Melbourne Park is the home of Tennis Australia and the Australian Open. This state-of-the art venue situated along the Yarra River on Batman Ave, has 22 outdoor courts including three show couts and 4 indoor courts. Court hire is open to the public seven days a week.

McCurdy eventually bowed out in the elite16s to No.16th seed American Tim Mayotte. Other tennis greats Stefan Edberg, Mats Wilander, Guillermo Vilas, and Wojtek Fibak failed to advance past the third round. The 1983 tournament was won by John McEnroe.defeating Chris Lewis of New Zealand.

 

In doubles competition, Macca reached the third round of the Australian Open in 1982, with countryman partner and former Oklahoma State University star Peter Johnston, whom he would pair with at four Grand Slam events. They were finalists at Melbourne's Black and Decker ATP Indoor Championships in 1984.

 

A dual athlete, McCurdy also took time off periodically to be included in Reserves Level for the North Melbourne Football Club. With his own personal development playing experience together with his vast coaching knowledge the new Tennis World Academy will surely give a big boost to the young crop of Aussie talent development.
