Personal life

Lloyd Harris was born in Cape Town, South Africa and began playing tennis at age 3 before committing professionally to the sport at 15. He speaks English and Afrikaans.

During the last tournament that his parents could afford, he qualified for two futures and made quarterfinals of one, and semi finals of the other. From this success he received enough support to play five more weeks of futures around Africa. In early 2018, he was playing in Portugal when he received the news of his father passing away the day before his match. He decided that he was going to stay and play for him and ended up winning back to back weeks.[23]

Coaching

Harris was coached by Norman McCarthy as a child, and in 2012 at the age of 15 joined the Anthony Harris Tennis Academy. He has been coached by Anthony Harris ever since. Xavier Malisse occasionally acts as his coach while on tour.

National representation

Harris has represented South Africa at the Davis Cup where he has a win-loss record of 11-4.
