The Craig Shapiro Tennis Podcast


Lisa Raymond Talks Tennis with Craig Shapiro

Season 5, Ep. 7

Over the course of her incredible life in tennis, Lisa Raymond won 2 NCAA singles titles, led the University of Florida to their first team title, and then got to 15 in the world in singles, posting wins over Venus Williams, Monica Seles, Jennifer Capriati, and Martina Hingis. She distinguished herself in doubles, reaching #1 in the world, won 6 majors, as well as another 7 in mixed, and won 79 titles. She is on the ballot for admission into The Tennis Hall of Fame, and is the coach of Allie Kiick.

We had a tremendous chat and covered a lot of topics, as Lisa shared her perspectives on what it takes to be competitive on the WTA Tour, how she got to 15 in the world, why she stopped playing singles, why she likes a plan when it comes to poaching, and talked about some of her favorite moments on tour.
