Melbourne VIC, Australia, 22 July 2014 | Tennis Australia

The Australian tennis family is mourning the sudden passing of renowned chiropractic sports physician Dr Andrea Bisaz.

Andrea was a much-loved and prominent figure in tennis and worked with many top players including former world No.1s Lleyton Hewitt, Pat Rafter and Ivan Lendl.

He was a key member of the Australian Davis Cup support team from 1999 to 2008, which included the two Davis Cup triumphs in 1999 and 2003.

An accomplished and highly regarded championship skier, Swiss-born Andrea’s distinguished international career also included work with the Australian Olympic team, World Championships and World Cups.

He will be sorely missed in the tennis and sports medicine communities and our thoughts and condolences are with his wife Maria, son Nello and step-children Carlin, Lachlan, Georgia-Rose, Ryland and Lydia.
