Legendary Coach Nick Bollettieri Hospitalized After Scare

According to Jimmy Arias, former tennis player and friend of Nick Bollettieri, Bollettieri was taken to the hospital after collapsing during a teaching session.

The 88-year-old Bollettieri has spent nearly his entire life coaching top tennis talents at his academy, including players like: Andre Agassi, Jim courier, Monica Seles, and many more.

According to Arias, Bollettieri is in good spirits, however is not one that enjoys hospital visits or needles.

“I talked to him last night and he was in pretty good spirits except he’s a guy that’s never gone to a doctor, he refuses to go to a doctor,” said Arias.

“He’s now feeling better, he got an IV. He had some sort of an infection that has caused problems for his kidneys but he’s in the hospital one more day. I think he’s going to be fine.”

Here at The Tennis Advocate, we are all wishing Nick a speedy and healthy recovery and we look forward to seeing him back to doing what he loves soon.
