Joshua Jake Goodall (born 17 October 1985) is a retired English tennis player, former British no 2 and Davis Cup player. He is currently a tennis coach.

Personal life[edit]

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]

Career[edit]

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.
