Early life

He was born in Zambia to Scottish parents but grew up in Zimbabwe where he regularly competed against Wayne Black.

Tennis career

He left Zimbabwe in 1988 to pursue tennis in the United Kingdom.[1] He reached a highest ranking of 172 in singles and 200 in doubles. He played in three Davis Cup ties for Great Britain, making his debut against Slovakia in 1995 and coming out of retirement to partner Tim Henman to victory against Thailand at the Birmingham NIA in 2002.[1]At Wimbledon in 1999 he managed to take Boris Becker to 5 sets.

Coaching

As a coach he worked with doubles specialists such as Wayne Black and Kevin Ulyett and was part of their team as they went on to win the Australian Open Doubles title in 2005. He subsequently continued to coach[2] the pairing of Kevin Ullyett and Paul Hanley after Wayne Black retired. At the end of 2007 he was invited to join up with fellow Scot and British No. 1 Andy Murray as part of his coaching team.[1] While there are others around him, Maclagan is the man Murray turns to for tactical advice.[3]
