About Me

I have played professionally and coached all levels, from professionals to beginners who have trouble making the water fountain hitting their mouth. Keeping it fun and positive are a basic part of my style. For tournament players, I am more direct. I focus on whatever you need, whether it be the biomechanics, mental aspects, fitness aspects of tennis, or all of them.

PLEASE NOTE: I have lower back "issues" that keep me from doing any sustained hitting. I am fully capable of "feeding" balls and coaching at all levels, although I prefer coaching at the elite high school, college level, and professional levels.

Teaching Style

Direct, fun, and focusing on biomechanics and mental aspects.
