Craig Boynton on the Functional tennis podcast

Craig Boynton, coach of Hubert Hurkacz [Ep.201]

Today I speak to Craig Boynton, the coach of Hubert Hurkacz. I was lucky to meet Craig last year at the IMG Future stars event in Greece as Hubie was playing in the exhibition match and also stayed on to train for a few days.


Going into chat  I didn’t know too much about Craig and I was intrigued to find out more about his early tennis and coaching career. He gets straight into it talking about stories of Pete Sampras and Jim Courier.  He also talks about the type of coach he is and how he adapts to players he has worked with. He tells us about his relationship with Hubert, we touch on his match against Novak in the Wimbledon 1/4s and he ends giving advice for our listeners who are tennis parents. And Finally he talks about his work with his sponsors Solinco who helped us out with photos of Craig, thanks!
