Tim Mayotte, Wimbledon Olympic Silver Medalist and Top Ten ATP player, is considered the best tennis player ever to come out of New England and is determined to develop more New England players with that distinction. He transitioned to coaching 15 years ago, determined to create an exceptional tennis training program to make U.S. tennis players more competitive on the world stage. In somewhat of a homecoming, Mayotte, a native of Springfield, is back in Massachusetts doing what he loves most—coaching future world-class ATP-WTA tennis champions.
Mayotte was a tennis phenom in the 1980s and 1990s, winning 12 singles titles and 1 doubles and beating every great of his era including Agassi, Sampras, Becker, Connors, Wilander, Edberg, and McEnroe. He spent most of four years inside the ATP Top Ten. He was a semifinalist and five-time quarterfinalist at Wimbledon and he reached the semifinals of the Australian Open. At Stanford University, he won the NCAA Singles crown in 1981. Mayotte won his first top-level professional singles title in 1985 at the inaugural Lipton International Players Championships (now known as the Miami Masters). He won the men's singles Silver Medal at the 1988 Olympic Games in Seoul. His best performances in the Grand Slam tournaments came in reaching the semi-finals at Wimbledon in 1982 and the Australian Open in 1983. He also reached the quarter-finals of the U.S. Open in 1989.
Mayotte served as President of the ATP Players Council as well as serving on the ATP Board of Directors. Over the last fifteen years, Mayotte has been coaching top juniors and pros including Louisa Chirico (as high as #60 WTA), William Blumberg (No #2 2017 college player in the nation), as well as multiple No #1 ranked junior players here in Massachusetts.
