Top 5 tennis coaches who were once players themselves

No matter how competitive a sport is, the guidance of a coach helps to channelize the strength in the right direction and bring out the best results.

The former Swedish player was the runner-up at the French Open in 2000 and achieved the highest ranking of 2 in 2001. He collaborated with the Swiss Stan Wawrinka in 2013.
