As a former professional tennis player on the WTA tour, I am very grateful for the valuable lessons that I have learned and the skills that I have acquired on and off the court. As many tennis players train hard in the hopes to step on Center Court at Wimbledon one day, a lot of players and their parents face obstacles they are not prepared to deal with and prevent them from climbing the rankings of the WTA/ATP tour.
What does it REALLY take to make it on tour?
What do parents/players need to look for when selecting a coach?
How do parents financially plan the 4-5 years that are usually needed so your kid can make it to the Slams?
What is the best way to schedule your children’s tournaments?
It was my pleasure to co-host this webinar with my two co-hosts:
