Former US Open doubles champion Sandon Stolle will join Wally Masur as a national coach at Tennis Australia's National Academy in Sydney.

Stolle, a former Australian Davis Cup and top-50 player, has been coaching for three years, most recently with the Australian Institute of Sport.

"We get a lot of players who are good at 14 or 15 but don't go to the next level, they can't seem to make the transition," Stolle said.

"We have a good understanding of the direction we want to go as a tennis nation and are driven to put that into place and continue on that pathway, everyone's pretty fired up."

The Sydney-based National Academy program is a joint initiative of Tennis Australia and Tennis New South Wales.
