Introduction: Hi Everybody!
My name is Daniil, I am from Tomsk, Russia. I am former professional tennis player with 20 years of experience, was Top 5 player in Siberia, Russia and I have been worked in many different academies and countries across the world. I used to work for three years as a tennis coach in one of the top academies in the world "Gorin tennis academy" in California. I had a full athletic scholarship in D2 at Montana State University in Billings and that's where I graduated from. I have been playing in 3 different teams during my career and have seen many different types and styles of tennis. Before the college I was playing ITFs and during the college year I was playing some Futures ATP. I have 12 years of coaching experience.
I teach methodology that include intense drilling with an emphasis on technique. Success is based on a proven methodology that creates high level players. It's not about hitting the ball hard, it's about being effective and knowing the methodology and how to hit the ball correctly. Same thing relates to footwork, which is one of the main foundation in tennis, it very important and should be developed as a muscle memory. I provide all types of coaching: tactical training, technique training, and footwork training.
I provide private and semi-private lessons and hitting sessions for adults and for juniors. Everything depends on your level, and I can guarantee you will improve! Just give me a call and let's arrange day and time. I am open for everybody, any age, any tennis level. All you need is a desire to become better. I am available in Palo Alto and Sunnyvale areas. If you have courts close to your home, we can talk about it and I can come.
Either if you are playing for fun or taking tennis seriously, this is the right place for you to improve your skills. You will feel the difference in your game after the first lesson.
Wish you good luck in your endeavors and I will see you soon on the tennis courts!
