Singles title: 1982--(1) Stowe 1987- Runner-up at Nagoya Challenger 1986- Quarterfinalist at Livingston, USTA New Haven 1985- R16 at Australian Open; Doubles QF at Livingston (w/R. Meyer), Hong Kong (w/E. Van't Hof). 1984- QF at North Conway, Tokyo, 3rd round of US Open. All-American at Princeton University. The likeable Princeton graduate staged an admirable comeback in 1984 after knee surgery had kept him off the tour for 18 months. The rangy Lapidus had been working his way through the qualifyings finally getting his big break at North Conway, where he beat Aaron Krickstein before a strained back muscle contributed to a quarterfinal loss. Jay plays a power game, yet prefers clay courts, where his topspin backhand is most effective. Jay earned his degree in psychology, doing studies on bar feeding of rats. Lapidus is an avid reader, particularly of Ayn Rand. Personal: married to the former Pia Tamayo with on son, Jason...men's tennis coach at Duke University since 1991...six-time ACC Coach of the Year
