Tomáš Anzari (born Třinec, 24 June 1970) is a former professional tennis player from the Czech Republic and writer on psychology and stress in sports.[1][2] He was also known as Tomáš Zdražila.[3]


Anzari, with countryman David Rikl, won the boy's doubles at the ITF World Championships in 1988, the same year that they were number one ranked juniors. The pair were also runners-up in the 1988 Wimbledon Championships, losing the boy's doubles final to Jason Stoltenberg and Todd Woodbridge. He remained with Rikl after turning professional and at the 1990 French Open, their first Grand Slam tournament in the men's, they reached the third round. It would remain Anzari's best performance in a Grand Slam.[4]

He reached eight doubles semi-finals on the ATP Tour, but only once made it into the final, in 1992, when he and Carl Limberger were runners-up at the BMW Open.[5]
