  9. Tim & Tom Gullikson Background Identical twins from Onalaska, Wisconsin, Tim and Tom Gullikson played on the professional tennis tour for more than a decade. Tim won four singles titles and 16 doubles titles, 10 of them with his brother, Tom. After retiring in 1986, both brothers turned their talents to coaching. Tom, who is Chairman of the Board of the Tim & Tom Gullikson Foundation, served as Davis Cup captain from 1994 to 1999, winning the prestigious cup in 1995. In 1996, as the men's Olympic coach, Tom guided Andre Agassi to the gold medal in Atlanta. As Director of Coaching for USA Tennis he helped nurture many of the game's future stars, among them Jennifer Capriati, who made her pro debut under his tutelage. Tim worked with such stars as Martina Navratilova, Mary Joe Fernandez and Aaron Krickstein. At the time of his death on May 3, 1996, from a brain tumor at age 44, Tim was the coach of Pete Sampras, the world’s No. 1-ranked player. Tim Gullikson used the same fighting spirit he developed as an athlete for his courageous battle against brain cancer. During his illness, he was profoundly moved by the toll a serious disease could take on both the patient and the family. It was Tim's wish to form a foundation to help families in similar situations by supporting organizations and individuals devoted to wellness care, education, and the social and psychological needs of patients and their families and friends.
