BiographyEdit

Originally from Lubbock, Texas, Davis is the eldest of three brothers and was coached by his father Doug.[1]

Tennis careerEdit

Most noted for his junior career, he was a Junior Davis Cup representative for the United States and a boys' doubles finalist at three grand slam tournaments.[2] In all three finals he finished runner-up, at the 1999 US Open with Alberto Francis, 2000 Australian Open with Andy Roddick and 2000 US Open with Robby Ginepri.[3] He also competed in the men's doubles draw with Ginepri at the 2000 US Open, where they lost a three set first round match to Argentines Pablo Albano and Lucas Arnold Ker.[4]

After winning the Big 12 Conference Championship title with Texas A&M, Davis turned professional in 2002. He competed mostly in satellite tournaments and on the Challenger Tour. His only main draw appearance on the ATP Tour came at the 2005 U.S. Men's Clay Court Championships in Houston, where he formed a wildcard pairing with Andy Roddick, who would win the singles title. The pair made the doubles quarter-finals, by beating James Blake and Mardy Fish.[5] He retired in 2006.

Life after tennisEdit

Davis is the former travelling coach of Ryan Harrison and now runs a cleaning and restoration business with his wife Paige in the Greater Austin area.[6][7]
