About Me

Hi, my name is Nagraj. I have been involved in tennis since the past 30 years while pursuing a professional career in materials science. I have participated in a number of athletic activities during high school and undergraduate years in Pune, India, including badminton, field hockey, track (mid-distance, cross-country) and tennis. I have taught tennis on a part-time basis in Gainesville, Florida, and during a summer (1993) in Pune, India. In 2014, I successfully completed the Van Der Meer Total Tennis University Course for Adults and qualified as a PTR adult instructor. In 2015, I also qualified as a PTR instructor for the 11-15 age groups. I am a member of the USTA (4.5+ rating) and the PTR (Professional Tennis Registry). I provide individual and group tennis instruction in Knoxville and nearby locations.

Teaching Style

I tailor my teaching to the needs of each student depending upon the skill level, age group and fitness level. I lay a lot of emphasis on physical conditioning and technical fundamentals of the game (serve, serve return, ground strokes, transition game, net skills, specialty shots, footwork). For more advanced students, I focus on mental aspects, match strategy & analysis. I also encourage my students to play doubles and teach doubles-specific techniques and tactics.
