Men's tennis

Former Stanford tennis coach and current John L. Hinds Director of Tennis Dick Gould was honored as a Team USA Coaching Legend at the third annual Team USA Coaching Awards reception held Sunday at the ASICS Easter Bowl junior tournament at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden in Indian Wells.

"Coach Gould is a living legend," USTA Player Development General Manager Martin Blackman said. "His elevation of college tennis in the 70s and 80s raised the bar for college tennis throughout the country and positioned college tennis as a pathway for American champions. He also showed the country that college tennis could generate revenue and galvanize college community support for universities."

Gould is widely regarded as one of the best college tennis coaches of all time. He led the Stanford Men's Tennis program from 1966-2004, where he guided the Cardinal to 17 NCAA team championships and coached 10 NCAA singles champions, seven NCAA doubles champions and 50 all-Americans.

The Intercollegiate Tennis Association's Coach of the Decade for the 1980s and 90s and a member of numerous Halls of Fame, Gould coached eight different Olympians and 13 different Grand Slam champions (singles, doubles and mixed) at Stanford, including John McEnroe and Bob and Mike Bryan.
