Hi my name is Rafa and I just recently moved from San Diego to Las Vegas to start a new chapter of my life. I am a tennis coach with over 22 years of playing experience and over 9 years of coaching experience teaching tennis players of all levels from beginner to college Division 1. I played Division 1 college tennis at Cal Poly SLO. I can work on any stroke from the serve (kick, slice, flat), forehand, backhand, forehand volley, backhand volley, overhead smash and everything in between which includes footwork, strategy and variations of each of the shots mentioned. I have taken several courses on technique and strategy all over the world with masterminds like Steve Smith, Matts Wilander and numerous college coaches throughout the United States as well as Germany, Brazil and Canada. Most importantly, I love tennis My most notable wins throughout my career were against players such as Taylor Fritz, Ulysses Blanch and Vincent Lin.
