Born 1st May 1973 in Stuttgart, Germany (near Filderstadt). Education: B.A./B.S in Marketing and Business Adminstration, Master of Business Administration ( :hatoff: ). 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 werenīt 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 didnīt intend to play as a pro.

Speaks german, english and a bit russian. Heīs 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 itīs tough to be with somebody 24 hours a day. We never really fought. We didnīt split up on bad terms. Itīs 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 :lol:

He was making a degree in Miami, and additionally (I guess) he got a job as a sparing partner at nasdaq.

I think we can also assume that Jens is very patient. Or hard of hearing.

Thanks for the info on Jens, I didn't know that. I think I deserve to be Nastya's assistant more than he does. Just wait till I meet Nastya, then she can dump Jens. And the girls can fight over him, and I will take Nastya.


Deal? :p

Meanwhile, an entire generation of nonEnglish speaking children grow up believing "Fuck you" means "Hey, coach."

And all you can do is snipe at each other. Oh the humanity.

Have you already heard what Vera did yesterday? Apparentely she totally freaked out during her three-set match which she eventually lost. She was mumbling something like "I will kill myself twice" and also got a warning for using certain words. The crowd was laughing at her because of that behaviour. Her coach always tried to change his seat so that Vera couldnīt scream at him anylonger and Vera was always trying to look out for him, trying to find his latest hiding place :lol:

Who say that Nastya is the meanest player concerning torturing coaches? Although Jens did leave once but well...damn thatīs too funny.

:lol: yep, there must be some kind of connection...I bet Jens and Lex (?) are totally bitching about their pupils when they are together. Come on, itīs a totally impossible behaviour of both players (although itīs damn funny!).

Last time I screamed at persons on court-side was directed at my mother when she watched one of my matches against friends...but back then I was like 10 and it was only a mad "manno!!!" (something like "Oh man!"), plus a flying raquet (and she shouted back for that!). I wouldnīt remember that if my mother hadnīt told me lately when I was cursing at a computer game and she was in the room :lol:

OMG...Justine just served at 122 mph :eek:

I talk to myself after every point. It's usually not flattering.

Poor Bepa. I don't know whether to laugh or cry at her meltdowns. Nastya's always seem funnier. When Lena D. isn't playing well she gets the saddest little girl look on her face.

The guys just yell and throw rackets. Not that I ever do that. No sirree Bob.

I curse all the time when I play tennis, I don't cry however ;)

And laugh after every double fault. Because there are usually at least 29382941821 of them. *sob*

OMG...I hate double faults. Especially when the second serve goes straight into the net. Love my first serve, hate second.

I remember my friend and I played a match like a year ago indoors and the courts are very close to each other and she lost a very important point and she was cursing like hell although sheīs considered as a very cute and nice person. I yelled at her cause she wouldnīt stop...when I finally stopped her, I made a gesture towards her that she might take a look at the left court and there were two little kids standing there totally amazed by that outburst and the words which came out of my friendīs mouth...next to the kids was the father and he was not amused :lol:

Yes, I try to keep reminding myself that just because I like Lena D. doesn't mean I have to serve like her.

Iīve read that Bianka Lamade (Gerlachīs first pupil) has now settled and works in an office now. Sheīs won Tashkent and had a career high at 59 and now sheīs just an "ordinary" person and still very young. Itīs incredible how fast you can rise and fall... :sad:
