Having been involved with tennis for over 20 years as a Tennis Trainer and a Tennis Mentor, I have realized how much I have learned from the game and those associated with it.
Having been involved with some of the best players in the world has meant I have also been around some of the best coaches in the world.
In my opinion, the role of the tennis coach is where a lot of the success and answers come from regarding a player’s career.
Outside the family dynamic, a coach should be someone of the highest influence for a player which when you think about it is a big responsibility. Think about this, how did Roger start out as a player?
He was coached by someone obviously very good and moved on to someone else very good. Along his journey, he worked out what works best for him from the knowledge and advice that was shared with him from; Coaches, trainers, and mentors.
As Tennis Trainers and Tennis Mentors, I have conducted 1000s of Tennis Workouts for players of all levels. I...
When we started our careers as tennis trainers, we never dreamed our journey would have gone as well as it has. We have met some amazing people along the way; Players, coaches, trainers, therapists, managers, tournament staff, fans, and everyone in between.
We have learned from the best in the business and now we thoroughly enjoy sharing our knowledge and experiences.
Working with some of the best tennis players in the world gave us the reality of what it takes to make it. We learned lessons not only about tennis workouts and everything tennis but more importantly about life. That is the beauty of sport, the lessons we learn from winning, losing, working hard, getting up after getting knocked down, learning to compete in a fair manner, transcend beyond the court.
As tennis trainers we believe it is as much about learning about the player;
This has always given...

Ok here is a blog for the all the players out there that want to improve quickly, win more matches and do them both with minimal effort…… Sound enticing? Read on
Many players will struggle to improve on a consistent basis, with both their tennis workouts and tennis game. They reach a point when added momentum will be required as levels start to plateau or even worse, injuries occur.
The many factors that can contribute to this situation include coaching, motivation levels, knowledge, application and attitude. But in our experience, some simple questions often reveal that players can identify at least three simple steps that they can implement immediately to help them make instant improvements.
Finding these things can propel players forward, providing momentum and boosting their motivation. They are often simple things (you don’t want to get too complicated).
The realisation that players can create change instantly is enough to shift their thoughts and will get...
One thing I have found over the years watching countless matches, practices and taken plenty of tennis workouts, is that most players don’t breathe as good as they could.
It sounds boring right, and you are probably thinking how much would it really benefit my tennis if I breathed a little better, if that’s you then buckle up, I’ve got some good info coming right up!!!
Breathing is an involuntary action taken by the body that means your body does it, without you having to think about it. Scratching your nose is a voluntary action because you need to think consciously about it and then your body communicates and makes it happen.
Because breathing is done subconsciously we grow up not realizing or appreciating how important it is, for many of us it’s like our parents, we often don’t appreciate them or what they do for us until they go on holidays!
Have you ever been winded, lost your breath, been held under water or been really sick with cold and...
