Personal lifeEdit

Goodall attended Cranbourne School, now called Cranbourne Business and Enterprise College.[1] His parents remortgaged their house five times to support his tennis career.[2]

CareerEdit

On 23 June 2007 Goodall reached his only ATP (World) Tour final, in doubles, at the Nottingham Open. He and partner Ross Hutchins lost that match in three sets 6–4, 3–6, [5–10] to Eric Butorac and Jamie Murray.

Goodall was British no 2, behind Andy Murray from 13 August 2012 with a world ranking of 196,[3] until 19 November 2012.[4]

Goodall played Davis Cup twice, in the 2009 Europe/Africa Zone Group I first round against Ukraine and the 2012 Europe/Africa Zone Group I second round against Belgium. At the Belgium tie, Goodall was the British no 1, in the absence of Andy Murray.
