“In my capacity as a National Coach and later the Davis Cup Captain, I was fortunate to work very closely with Edgar in his capacity as a USTA Coach from 1990 to 1995. Edgar has a great understanding of the game of tennis and was very good at communicating with the players. His high level of energy and enthusiasm that he brought to the teaching court everyday had a very positive effect on the players and his fellow coaches as well. Edgar also is a tremendous student of the game, and never stops learning, interacting with his fellow coaches in his quest to become the best coach he can be.
