Troy Hahn Named USTA Coach
*WHITE PLAINS, N.Y., June 4, 2009 — *The USTA announced today that Troy Hahn has been hired as a USTA Coach. In this role, Hahn will facilitate coaching and training programs while working with players in the USTA Player Development program. He will be based at the USTA Training Center Headquarters in Boca Raton, Fla., and will report to Ola Malmqvist, Heads of Women’s Tennis, USTA Player Development. Hahn joined the coaching staff in May.
“Troy is another outstanding addition to our staff,” said Patrick McEnroe, General Manager, Player Development. “He is a young guy who played professionally and can also speak to the importance of college tennis as both a former player and assistant coach. I think he is going to provide a lot of experience and enthusiasm which our players can feed off of.”
Hahn, 27, of West Lafayette, Ind., is joining the USTA following a one-year stint as Assistant Men’s Tennis Coach at Purdue University. Hahn played professionally from 2004-07 and won six ITF Pro Circuit doubles titles in that span while achieving a career-high No. 410 doubles ranking. He also served as a practice partner for the U.S. Fed Cup team for five ties over a two year span. Hahn played collegiate tennis at the University of Florida, where he helped lead the Gators to two SEC titles. Hahn was a two-time co-captain and reached career-highs of No. 18 in singles and No. 7 in doubles in the ITA rankings.
The new USTA Player Development unit has been created to identify and develop the next generation of American champions by surrounding the top junior players and young pros with the resources, facilities and coaching they need to reach their maximum potential. The Player Development program is based at the USTA Training Center Headquarters in Boca Raton, Fla., and also utilizes the USTA Training Center-West in Carson, Calif. The USTA recently announced its third Certified Regional Training Center in Austin, Texas, to go along with two centers it named last year in Atlanta and Washington, D.C., as part of its expanded efforts to develop future American tennis champions. The USTA expects to name approximately ten more Regional Training Centers over the next five years.
