"I have been playing tennis since I was 5 and have been instructed by lots of good coaches through the years so I know about competitive tennis and what to look for.
We've switched 3 coaches in 3 years, not having found the right coach for my twin girls until we came across Coach Alicia. Not only was she a tennis prodigy with impressive credentials (reached world #3 junior rankings), but she played professionally on the WTA tour and claimed 2 ITF titles before being sidelined by a major injury. Coach Alicia brings with her tour experience, great knowledge of the game and tennis playing abilities (mental, physical) few coaches can match. Best of all, she is down to earth and demonstrates excellent teaching qualities that only good coaches possess (patience, encouraging, firmness when necessary, positive, enthusiastic, supportive, trusting, focused, goal-oriented, knowledgeable, observant and a clear communicator). Her focus is not just to develop good tennis players, but to turn my girls into responsible, respectful, independent and goal-oriented young women on and off the courts. My girls and I love Coach Alicia. She has made such a difference in building and enhancing my girls' tennis knowledge and techniques. More importantly, she has developed and expanded their love of the game and maturity. We highly recommend her. They never listen to me, but she has such a great relationship with them that she is able to get them to go beyond their comfort zone and keep getting better. Amazing!"
