No, I've never been a tennis captain and probably wouldn't be a good one given my long absence from the game. But I have served in various leadership positions throughout my work career, whether it's managing departments comprised of multi-cultural persons or leading cross-functional teams.
While not exactly identical, I think there are some similarities when it comes to managing/coaching/developing/leading intelligent, ambitious persons (some with egos) towards achieving a common goal.
And if by some chance you actually believe that one can't comment on being a tennis captain unless one has actually served in that capacity, I think I don't need to drive a car off a cliff to know that doing so is probably a very bad idea.
