Harris was coached by Norman McCarthy as a child.

In 2012 he joined the Anthony Harris Tennis Academy, and has been coached by Anthony Harris ever since.

Although they share the same surname, they aren’t related.

Lloyd Harris is also coached by former player Xavier Malisse, who has helped fine-tune the South African’s skills.

“Xavier has been a huge influence in the team since he joined. He has so much experience, so much I can learn from him,” Harris said.

“He has been in these situations many times, and was obviously a phenomenal player. Now he can help me with my transition to becoming a better player also.”
