Daniel Dobre is a former professional tennis player from Romania. Like many former players he has held may roles in his career in tennis - player, coach, running an academy to tournament director. However his most famous job has been as the coach of Simona Halep. Dobre has had three coaching stints with Halep and the last one was the most beneficial for both as it resulted in a Wimbledon title. Dobre talks about the life as a young tennis teen that needed to come out of the communist Romania and how hard it was to do it without a proper federation that could support its players. He also talks about Gunther Bosch's influence on his tennis coaching career. The conversation also pays a big tribute to the manager player tandem of Virginia Ruzici and Simona Halep. Last but not the least Dobre talks about his working relationship with Darren Cahill when the two men formed a coaching team to manage Halep's tennis.
