My Coaching Philosophy

I believe in getting better every day. You can’t improve everything, every day, but you can improve something today. With the bigger picture in mind, setting clear goals day in and day out is the process mindset that creates amazing improvement.
There is always a goal and an intention when you work with me and you will see that over time consistent effort in working towards and achieving those small goals makes a dramatic improvement in a player’s development.

Roger Federer mix up to keep Djokovic honest. 🎾🧠

Throwing in some mixup tactics will keep your opponents honest and make it harder for them to predict your primary patterns of play.

Drop shot approach from Berrettini 🧠 🎾 ⠀

When you are successful using your forehand to attack your opponent in the mid court, you will have them looking to defend more often. This opens up the possibility for using the drop shot approach. Great example here 👌🏼 ⠀

1 on 1 capture the targets with Nelson Vs Savo🎯 🎾 ⠀

Aim of the game is to hit the standing targets with accurate serves ⠀

When you hit a target you “capture it” and set it up on your side of the court for your opponent to potentially capture it back. ⠀

This is a race to capture all the targets to your side of the net and win the game. ⠀

Tip: Rush your service and you’ll lose accuracy, take too much time and your opponent might beat you to the punch. 😏⠀

Have fun with it. 🙌🏼⠀

Forehand work with Andrea (9yrs) 💥 👊🏼

In this drill we’re focusing on a couple technical points but also using the makers to determine her crosscourt targets.

Little bit of progress every session. That’s the mindset 🧠 🎾

Kick serves with Mike Blando 🦘 🎾 ⠀

When you can attack the AD court with an aggressive kicker like this, you can put a lot of pressure on your opponents backhand return on the stretch. ⠀

A very good weapon to set up the serve and volley or the +1 forehand to the open court or back behind your opponent 👌🏼🎾🧠⠀

1. Be good to yourself ❣️⠀
2. Try your best ✅ ⠀
3. Be intense with your legs ⠀
4. Be proactive during points ⠀
5. Focus on each point and the process 💯 ⠀

3. Keep going for your serve⠀
4. Stick to the baseline as much as possible ⠀
5. Stay low on passes and use your legs ⠀

Notice that there is no mention of the outcome. These are performance, effort, attitude and strategy reminders. These are the things you can control. ⠀
