Johan Kriek joins the Tennis Frontier Blog Team
I'm happy to advise that Johan Kriek has agreed to become a blog contributor to the Tennis Frontier.

Johan won the Australian Open in 1981 and 1982, a number of other singles and doubles titles and is currently the only professional player at his level who is dedicated to personally teaching students in the sport.

Johan and his wife Daga (a former nationally-ranked player in Europe) run the Johan Kriek Tennis Academy in North Carolina.

Johan's Blog is at:
