The Extra Mile Tennis Coach I hired coach Robert Perez to get my daughter from championship to a super championship level but in return I got so much more. For example, her first lesson went as expected, evaluated my girl's strokes but not just said what needed to be corrected but wrote it down. Also suggested different strokes to be added to her arsenal. Plus he wrote up a game plan of short-term goals, long term goals and what's going to be taught for the remaining hours. The pro also introduced an exercise program of flexible power. Your tennis artiste was also there for the very first tournament after extensively working to improve the old strokes and new ones and working on different game patterns. Now, she has new topspin second serve, a deadly drop shot and an awesome net game, to name a few. The maestro understood my girl's personality and confirmed it with a personality test and help evaluate my girl's opponents' personalities and motor skill traits. She now knows how to handle an offensive or defensive player to her advantage. This pedagogue has taught my girl about Code of Tennis and the rules through multiple choice questionnaires. From being a roving umpire himself he knows the complexities of umpiring, which is very valuable to a tennis player. To help the intensity of learning, your professional has documented every lesson for future reference. The expertise strings all of her rackets and has introduce her to new types of strings. Until now, I didn't know there was "square" strings, which has increased her topspin. This paradigm is a great role model and excellent coach and comes across with first-rate body language and tone of voice and what he says is always optimistic. Over the 40 years of teaching, it is obvious this specialist has improved his techniques of teaching tennis and my daughter has been with a number of PTR coaches, all have been good in one way or another, but to be exceptional at every aspect of teaching this game is a complete rarity. This man, this hard working guru is a one of a kind anomaly with a likeable personality. My daughter is now playing Super Championship tournaments and glad of it and still learning from coach Robert Perez.

Coach Robert is truly a great coach. First off, I would like to say that I think he'd be a great coach for not only a beginner, but also for any intermediate to advance level tennis player. He reinforces the basics and fixes your mistakes constantly, which I believe all coaches should do. It helps drill into your brain your faults. Only by knowing your faults can you improve your game. From our first meeting, I could tell I was learning from a veteran of the game. He is extremely passionate about the sport and I knew I could count on him to help jump start me to back onto the courts (I had taken a break for a couple of years and lost most of my form and footwork.) I can confirm that everything he teaches is correct and he constantly jolts my memory of things I've learned before years ago, but had forgotten. Even if you disagreed with his teachings, he will explain in detail why he teaches you to do something a certain way. The guy has played for over 30 years. You can't argue with experience. From correct grips, serves, ground strokes, volleys, to overhead smashes, etc... He really teaches it all. He'll even teach the mental part of the game if you choose to go in that route. Since taking up Coach Robert, I've developed a better understanding of the game. Every aspect of my game has improved. One important thing to note: He teaches you what you want to learn (with a bit of his own tidbits added in depending on your skill level). So if you don't feel like learning something, just say so. His lessons are based on what you want and what kind of player you want to become. It just so happens that everything he chooses to teach me is something I want to learn. Give this coach a try. Beyond his lessons, you'll also enjoy his (sometimes hilarious) life stories and random jokes during lessons. (although every once in awhile, they make no sense! But don't tell him I said that, hahahaha!)
I've been to nine different tennis pros in my lifetime at different locations, country clubs, tennis camps, Tennis Resorts, municipal Tennis Centers and private tennis instructors all over the United States and I truly felt my game wasn't improving with this type of form they were teaching me. It was always the same type of form, straight line back swings. For example: pull your racket straight back, with a forehand grip, and then straight forward, over your head to hit a serve. Plus this form was irritating my rotator cuff. I started to investigate by watching top professionals at different web sites in slow motion and compare them to my strokes and they're not the same! I spend a lot of money back then, hoping to get the right instructions, for what I paid for. I know to some people this doesn't matter, they just want to have fun, but I believe I can have even more fun with the right strokes, (injured free strokes). I kept on searching for the right instructor, some were even certified instructors, asking for my money back, once I found out, it was the same form again. Until I found coach Robert Perez, he gave me the form I was looking for, something that you see at the US Open and my shoulder doesn't hurt anymore. Now, I don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to become a pro but I'm assuming this new form will be the gateway for better accuracy, more power and less effort for my entire body. And my assumptions were correct with the help of coach RP. Thank you coach Robert Perez! If by chance you see your form not taking you anywhere, take a lesson from this guy. You won't regret it!
