John Fitzgerald is a true Australian sporting icon.
In a nutshell, John Fitzgerald is an Australian favourite. His experience on and off the tennis court has given him a reputable name and his media commitments have allowed him to enhance what has already been a magnificent career.
After his retirement, John Fitzgerald joined the Seven Network to provide expert commentary on the Australian Open. He is also a well sought after Keynote Speaker and MC, capable of adding that special touch to any function.
As a player, his greatest career highlights came during the 11 years he represented Australia in the Davis Cup. During this time he put his stamp on Australian tennis and proved himself to be an integral part of the team, playing in 3 finals and playing a major role in defeating Sweden in both the 1983 and 1986 finals at Kooyong.
John took the honours on a number of occasions and his career has been filled with many fist pumping triumphs. He held the Number 1 ranking in Australia, represented his country in 2 Olympic Games (Seoul and Barcelona), won 6 ATP TOUR singles titles, won 30 ATP TOUR doubles titles (which included 7 GRAND SLAM titles) and received the Order of Australia Medal in 1993 for services to tennis.
The year 2000 saw John selected by Tennis Australia to become Australia’s Davis Cup captain from 2001, which was a huge honour. He became only the fourth Australian captain in the past 60 years.
"By far these two speakers (John Fitzgerald & John Alexander) were the best we have had and all the comments and feedback we received has been fantastic. I would highly recommend both speak ... keep readingers for an informal presentation and I believe they contributed to the success of the event". Sponsorship and EventsView more
