Born 1st May 1973 in Stuttgart, Germany (near Filderstadt). Education: B.A./B.S in Marketing and Business Adminstration, Master of Business Administration (
). I think he attended some college in Miami. According to Nastya, he lived there for a few years.
Nastya and Jens both met when she needed a sparring partner in 2002, he officially became her coach in New Haven 2002. He coached German Bianca Lamade before that, but I think they weren´t sooo successful.
He is listed as a player on the ATP tour, but either he was just too bad (highest ranking was like 1500 (?)) or he didn´t intend to play as a pro.
Speaks german, english and a bit russian. He´s officialy registered as a coach on the WTA tour. Nastya and Jens were dating for like a year.
Quote from Jens, Wimbledon 2004:
“Even when she was my girlfriend, I found I could concentrate on the tennis, and it´s tough to be with somebody 24 hours a day. We never really fought. We didn´t split up on bad terms. It´s just a choice we made. I had a choice of still hang around. She has a choice to have me as her coach. We just made the choice to give it a shot.”
I wished I kenw that much about my studies...and not only about tennis-related stuff
