Florin Segarceanu needs no introduction – he is widely renowned for being one of the best tennis players in the world that Romania has ever offered. He was a multiple national, European and a triple university champion. He played ATP tournaments starting 1980 up until 1992. While on the ATP Tour, he was ranked inside top 100 players in the world for more than 5 years. He obtained the best result of his generation, namely the qualification in the first 8 teams worldwide, together with Ilie Năstase. In 1995 he became the non-playing captain and coach of the Romanian Davis Cup team, and since, the Romanian team has constantly been among the top 16 teams in the world. Starting 1999, Florin dedicated his time to investing in education, real estate development and golf. He aims to gather all golf players in Romania under the RGA “umbrella” and to bring golf to a higher level.
