Tennis families

Hi,

I would like to know about the families (brothers/sisters/mothers/fathers/uncles/aunts etc.) that play or used to play professional tennis. And I'm not talking about marriages (Andre/Steffi f.e.), but "blood relatives".

I know about:

Oli / Christopher Rochus
Byron / Wayne / Cara Black
Marat / Dinara Safina (I know their mather also used to be a sportswoman, but I don't know which sport)

If you know, please post families which include the tennis player and other sport player, like:

Rafael Nadal / Miguel Angel Nadal (footballer)

Anyone know some ? Thanks

Re: Tennis families

Tim Henman's grandmothers - I believe both played at Wimbledon. I'm sure one was the last to serve underarm.

An d there's the Sanchez family - Aranxta, Emilio and Javier.

I think for me the most talented of all times was (Marcelo) Rios. Marat Safin, 2004

Marcelo has an enormous talent. Gaudio, RG champion 2004

"Rios ... he has a beautiful game, great forehand and great touch," Federer, World number 1

Guillermo Coria: "Ríos and Vilas are my two idols"

Re: Tennis families

Aren't Coria and Gaudio half brothers or something?
Andy & Jamie Murray - their mother used to coach tennis and I think played as well.

I think you're right, although I thought it was first to serve overarm.

yeah, that's it - one served overarm first, the other was the last to serve underarm.
