Grand Slam success for John-Laffnie de Jager
South African Davis Cup captain and Level A* GPTCA Member, John-Laffnie de Jager, can boast with another Grand Slam-title as coach. One of the doubles players he coaches on the ATP Tour, Julien Rojer from The Netherlands, today won the Mixed Doubles title at the French Open with his partner Anna-Lena Groenefeld from Germany. The unseeded pair beat 8th-seeded Nenad Zimonjic from Serbia and Julia Goerges from Germany in the final.
John-Laffnie previously coached South African Wesley Moodie when he won the Men's Doubles Title with Australian Stephan Huss at the 2005 Wimbledon Championships. Later he also coached Wesley when he lost in the Mixed Doubles final, also at Wimbledon, partnering American Lisa Raymond.
De Jager started coaching Julien Rojer and his doubles partner, Horia Tecau from Romania, in the beginning of 2014. They now start preparation for the grass-court season leading up to Wimbledon in July.
