Andrew Richardson’s proudest moment was being called up to represent Great Britain in its Davis Cup tie against Zimbabwe, the day before his 23rd birthday. On his debut in the Euro/African Group II tie at Crystal Palace in April 1997, he beat Byron Black 3-6, 6-4, 1-6, 6-4, 6-4 in the second singles rubber and remains (as of September 2009) the last British debutant to win a live singles rubber. The 6’7” Lincolnshire left-hander started to play tennis aged nine, influenced by his father and the exploits of John McEnroe. Nicknamed "Flex", he worked with John Hicks between the aged of 14-18, who instilled good discipline into his players. Aged 22 and languishing in the 400s, Richardson teamed up with David Sammel, who developed his game and helped him reached a career-high No. 133 in singles (3 November 1997) and a doubles career-high No. 96 (21 October 1996). He received three Wimbledon singles wild cards in 1992, 1997-98. He reached the 1997 third round (l. to Rusedski) and was a doubles competitor from 1992-98. He also competed in the doubles at the 1996 US Open and 1996-97, 1999 Australian Open. On the ATP Challenger Tour he won one singles title - 1997-Urbana (d. Mamiit) – and five doubles trophies – 1995-Seoul (w/Henman), 1995-Rogaska (w/Petchey), 1996-Bristol (w/Pala), 1998-Lippstadt (w/Wakefield), 1998-Lubek (w/Manta) – from nine finals – 1994-Rogaska (w/Cowan), 1995-Reunion Island (w/Henman), 1999-Lucknow (w/Ondruska), 2000-Wrexham (w/Maclagan). In 1998, he won the doubles title at the British National Championships (w/Maclagan) and retired in July 2000. He was one of two best men at Tim Henman’s wedding in December 1999. He has coached Ross Hutchins, Alan Mackin and Miles Kasiri, and currently works as a coach at a David Lloyd Tennis Academy. Bio: James Buddell – September 2009
