Tennis is my passion and way of life. I started to play tennis when I was 5 years old, and since then tennis has been my way of living. Before becoming a coach for professional tennis players, I competed for more than 10 years at many different levels.

Now that I am a tennis coach, I can say that tennis is not only technique on the court – it encompasses many other aspects of life such as physical and mental strength, but also determination and motivation. Tennis helped me create discipline in my life. It is my passion and I love sharing my knowledge and expertise with all people who are willing to try or advance in tennis.
