Tennis career

Taróczy was six times a Hungarian national champion.

One of the game's premier doubles artists, Balazs and partner Heinz Günthardt surged from the pack to win the 1985 Wimbledon doubles title. Though never especially proficient on the grass prior to their magic fortnight, the duo played beautifully on the historic centre court at the All-England Club to defeat Pat Cash-John Fitzgerald in four sets.

He became the Hungarian No. 1 player in 1973 and was a member of the Hungarian Davis Cup team from 1973 to 1985.

Despite playing part-time, still managed to finish top 50 in the doubles world rankings at No. 45 in 1989[1]

From September 1989 to the end of 1990 he was the coach of Goran Ivanišević.
