Giancarlo Lemmi joined the Lady Flames' coaching staff in the fall of 2012 as a graduate assistant and during the summer of 2013, he was promoted to a full-time assistant by head coach Jeff Maren.
Lemmi's strong knowledge of the game and Liberty tennis stems from his four-year playing career for the Flames.
During his first four seasons as the full-time assistant, Lemmi has helped the Lady Flames to a 61-36 overall record, including a 29-6 mark in Big South Conference matches and a share of the Big South regular-season crown in each of the past two seasons (2016, 2017).
In the spring of 2016, Lemmi helped lead the Lady Flames to the finals of the Big South Women's Tennis Championship. The team's eight Big South wins set a new single-season program record. Liberty has reached the semifinals or finals of the Big South Women's Tennis Championship in each of his first four seasons with the program.
During the 2015 spring season, Lemmi helped guide the Lady Flames to 19 victories, setting a new single-season program record.
The Sao Paulo, Brazil, native helped the Flames reach double-digit victories in each of his four total seasons as a player—the first such stretch in the program's history. Lemmi helped the Flames accumulate 50 victories in the four-year span.
Lemmi concluded his standout career in 2012, finishing as the Flames' all-time career wins leader in both singles (72) and doubles (79) play upon graduation. The two-time Big South All-Conference player in doubles also excelled in the classroom, being named to the Big South's Presidential Honor Roll three times, the Big South All-Academic team twice (2011-12) and the VaSID All-Academic team once (2012).
Lemmi and his wife, Meredith, currently reside in Lynchburg, Va.
