Bernard Giudicelli is one of the driving forces behind French tennis — the result of a career which he says began as a Roland-Garros spectator during the final between Björn Borg and Víctor Pecci, back in 1979. Although he founded Corsica’s tennis league in 1991, Giudicelli was never a top player, but that didn’t stop him from devoting his life to his passion. He served as a volunteer, coach, referee, club director and league director. He is now president of the French Tennis Federation (FFT). He is also the first Frenchman to be picked as President of the Davis Cup committee since the tournament was created in 1900.
