I am a former ITF Circuit & WTA player with 20+ years in the Tennis Industry. My experience as an ITF & WTA player provides added value and insight to her overall teaching experience. My love, loyalty, and enthusiasm towards the game of tennis motivates me to coach juniors and adults that are genuinely looking to improve their play level (whether at leisure or competitively).
My primary goal as a tennis coach is to create more awareness on the many benefits and quality of life in playing tennis. As a Professional coach I am dedicated to developing and improving players skills/technics, (particularly the junior players- I believe in early tennis grooming and nurturing in the youthful years, as well as consistency and longevity as one of the key path to success of a player in the game of tennis).
My past experience in the professional circuit allow me to relate and cater well to players from diverse backgrounds. My warm approach in these areas is evident in my on-court/off-court teaching principles.
I enjoy watching my students growth curve from beginner level to intermediate to advance. I especially enjoy the astonished look on clients' faces when they begin to hit strokes they have struggled with prior to our program. It is fullfilling, and a privilege to bring many into the tennis lifestyle, as players begin to find their comfort zone, relax to play at ease, and have more confidence in their strokes and overall playing ability.
I don’t know what an outstanding lesson would be so that’s why the four stars. That is not to say that my lesson with Femmy was in any way bad. She is obviously knowledgeable and a skilled player. She analyzed my flaws and was very patient and encouraging. I highly recommend her. She has a very friendly personality and is easy to talk to. She answered all my questions.
To work with a coach who is passionate and knowledgeable about her gift is honorable. Every encounter brings forth motivation and a thirst to learn more.
