Biography

Robert Seguso was a doubles specialist, partnering mostly with Ken Flach. Together they won the 1988 doubles gold medal, and also won four Grand Slam doubles titles – two at Wimbledon, one at the US Open, and one at the French Open. They were world ranked #1 in doubles for several years, first achieving that ranking in 1985. Seguso and Flach also played the doubles slot for the US Davis Cup team from 1985-91, compiling a 10-2 record.

Seguso also played singles, reaching a career high rank of #22 in the world in March 1987. His best Grand Slam singles performance was reaching the fourth round at Wimbledon in 1985. Seguso played college tennis at Southern Illinois in Edwardsville. He was runner-up at the 1982 NCAA D-2 Championships in singles, and also runner-up in 1983 in D-1 doubles (with Flach). Seguso later married Canadian tennis player Carling Bassett.

After tennis Seguso started his own venture capital company, Seguso Holdings, and served as its President, CEO, and CFO from its founding in October 2004. After his retirement Seguso also invested in Florida real estate, and developed a tennis and sports complex in Boca Raton, Florida – Seguso-Bassett Tennis Academy, which became Everett, Bassett, Seguso Tennis Academy in 1995. In 2011 he became President and Director of Andover Medical, which later merged with another company to become, after the merger Hot Mama’s Foods – that is not a typo, with Seguso remaining a director of the new company.
