I saw Robert Lansdorp on the Tennis Channel. When he was a child during World War II, he lived in Indonesia. The Japanese put his dad in a concentration camp. And tortured his mother.
After the war, the Dutch fought a war with England over control of Indonesia. And Lansdorp told more horror stories that I can't remember the exact details of.
But he's had a scary, eventful life.


And he coached Sampras, Austin, Davenport, and Sharapova. But they had other coaching also.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

All I know is that he is the guy you go to if you want to learn to be a good ball-striker (Davenport, Sharapova).

He also helped Anastasia Myskina get into the top 10. He's a really great coach.

Robert has worked with Pete, Tracy Austin, Lindsay, Myskina, Chris Evertt and now Maria. He's known as a master of tecnique when it comes to groundstrokes. I often wonder if he could help Venus with that little hitch in her forehand.
