Heinz Peter Günthardt (born 8 February 1959 in Zürich) is a former tennis player from Switzerland, who won five singles titles during his professional career, including the Rotterdam WCT in 1980.

In doubles, Günthardt captured a total number of 30 titles. The right-hander reached his career-high ATP singles ranking of World No. 22 in April 1986. Günthardt won the men's doubles at the 1985 Wimbledon Championships with Balázs Taróczy, and the mixed doubles at the 1985 US Open partnering Martina Navrátilová. He was also a member of the Swiss team at the 1988 Olympic Games.[1]

Coaching career

He was the coach of all-time great Steffi Graf, from the start of 1992 until the end of Graf's tennis playing career in July 1999, and he has also worked briefly with Jelena Dokić and Jennifer Capriati.[2]

From February to November 2010 he coached former WTA World No. 1 Ana Ivanovic.[3] Günthardt had previously not coached full-time since Steffi Graf announced her retirement in 1999.[4] When Günthardt started coaching her, Ivanovic had just dropped out of the WTA's top 20, and she dropped to a career low of World No. 65 in July 2010;[5] but, she recovered to World No. 17[6][7] before he ended his coaching relationship with her, due to his inability to coach and travel with Ivanovic full-time due to family responsibilities.[8]
