Daniel Glancy announced his retirement from the professional tour this week after a career which saw him win seven doubles titles on the ITF pro-circuit and reach eleven more finals. The first win in 2010 was in Herkalion in a championship tie-break, when partnering the British player Marcus Willis they denied Ireland’s Colin O’Brien and Sam Barry in the final.
He made history in April 2013 when he became the first player from Connacht to represent Ireland in the Davis cup. He defeated Micke Kontinen of Finland in his debut match,.He has been a very loyal servant to Irish Tennis and continued to support juniors from his home club in Castlebar throughout his career.
He now plans to pursue a future in tennis coaching and with his experience from the tour will be a great asset to the existing high performance team at the national academy.
