Known as a brilliant strategist, Gilbert coached the last two Americans who have reached No. 1 in the world – Andre Agassi (1994-2002) and Andy Roddick (2003-2004). Gilbert coached Agassi for six of his eight Grand Slam wins, and was Roddick’s coach when he won the 2003 US Open. Gilbert also coached Andy Murray to a world No. 8 ranking.
