David Macpherson was named head coach of GW's men's tennis program on August 24, 2016.

In his first season at the helm, Macpherson led the Colonials to a successful 17-7 record and an appearance in the Atlantic 10 Championship semifinals. Three Colonials landed First Team All-Conference honors in 2017, while one student-athlete earned Academic All-Conference distinction.

Macpherson coached the Colonials to an upset victory over then-No. 38 South Alabama on neutral ground on March 15 for his first triumph over a ranked program as head coach.

From 2005-2016, Macpherson served as coach of professional American duo Bob and Mike Bryan - more widely known as the Bryan Brothers - guiding the famed tandem to an Olympic gold medal, 10 year-end world No. 1 rankings, 15 grand slam titles and 87 career titles. In 2014, Macpherson coached Roger Federer and Stanislas Wawrinka to the 2014 Davis Cup title and was named World Team Tennis Coach of the Year in 2014.

Macpherson posted a stellar professional career on the ATP tour from 1984-2003 that saw the Tasmania, Australia, native reach a career-high ATP individual doubles ranking of No. 11 and a doubles team ranking of No. 8. Macpherson tallied 16 ATP tour titles - including the 1992 Masters Series Indian Wells crown - and amassed 288 career ATP tour victories.

In 2004, Macpherson founded the David Macpherson Tennis Academy in Sarasota, Florida, where he worked with high level junior players.
