His professional coaching career has spanned 20 years on the ATP and WTA tour. His awards through these years include the 1991 World Team Tennis coach of the year and the 1991 and 2002 USPTA touring coach of the year. In 1990 Craig coached Martina to her record setting 9th Wimbledon title. Later, he coached Alexandra Stevenson in 1999 and Xavier Malisse in 2002 to their first Grand Slam singles semi-final at Wimbledon.
From 1998 until 2001, Craig was selected by the USTA as one of their National Coaches. His efforts continue today coaching World Team Tennis for the Philadelphia Freedoms. As Billy Jean King said of Craig, "Craig Kardon is wonderful. He knows the concept of Team Tennis and he is really wonderful at getting his players to play as a team and cheer each other on."
