Bob Brett resigns from LTA player development role
LONDON (AP) — The Lawn Tennis Association says Bob Brett has resigned on Monday from his role as director of player development.
Brett says “I enjoyed my time at the LTA working with some very talented players.”
The Australian began working with the LTA in early 2014, when he evaluated British tennis and implemented changes allowing boys and girls to compete against players across the world in their age range.
“I would like to recognize the contribution Bob brought to British Tennis. Many of his recommendations aimed at raising the bar for excellence, have now been implemented,” said LTA Chief Executive Michael Downey.
Brett’s resignation will take effect from the end of July.
