Hi there, I've been a tennis coach and pro hitting partner for over 20 years (Moscow Russia, New York and Los Angeles) My extremely active tennis lessons are for those of you that competitive, tournament or league players (2.5-5.5). You will learn how to play against and win over all styles of players!... starting from aggressive baseliners to high and loopy ball players\pushers (including Federer's, Nadal's and Djokovic's styles of play). It is not just about a correction of your backhand, forehand, footwork,etc...it is also a new strategy you get playing different players within a lesson. During my lesson you play points against multiple players: serve and volley; flat shot (only); under spin backhand and top spin forehand; pushers; inpatient huge hitters\baseliners, etc... i "upgrade a player" multiple times to make you ready to face your near future similar styles opponents and beat them all. During my lessons you'd rather feel more like a player than a student.
