Previous experience
Pat was born in Melbourne in May 1965 and was the best player in Australia by the time he was 14. A hard-fighting serve and volleyer, he turned pro in 1982 and reached his highest ranking of world number four in 1988.

In 1984, he became the youngest player to compete in the Davis Cup Final, helping Australia to defeat Sweden 3-2.

Unfortunately, persistent serious injuries eventually brought his career to an end at the highest level. He coached British player Greg Rusedski until 2000 for a brief spell and has also coached fellow Aussie Mark Philipoussis.
