I have been developing junior tennis players for over 20 years now. I worked in clubs, academies and as a private coach with competitive junior players of all ages and levels.
Working with competitive players requires traveling to tournaments and seeing them compete. Nothing can replace that. Sometimes that’s easy and sometimes it just can’t be done. For so many different reasons that I won’t even get into that. I faced that problem over and over and I never stopped looking for the answer.
Feedback from players and parents can be valuable but at the same time it can be subjective and sometimes even deceiving. So I started asking parents to record tournament matches and that helped a lot. I was able to see my players compete and make my own conclusions about what happened. There was one problem though: I wanted my players to watch the match with purpose. I wanted my players to see what I saw. I didn't need them to watch the entire match, just things that mattered. I needed technology that would allow me to search through all the points and find exactly the ones that I wanted to share and discuss with my players. I got what I needed and it worked with video analysis. My players finally saw the same things that I saw in their games. This has a huge impact on a player's improvement. It was an instant success.
I started wondering how many coaches and players out there would benefit from this. I knew how much time, effort and years of experience it took for me to put all that together. I wanted to offer it to all committed coaches and driven players; to all the parents that wanted only the best for their kids. I wanted to make it comprehensive, user-friendly and affordable. That’s how the idea of Game Smart Tennis was born.
Game Smart Tennis was not one man’s effort. I was lucky enough to collaborate with some brilliant people whose insights and contribution gave final shape to the service that Game Smart Tennis offers today. I will be forever grateful to everyone who was part of this amazing journey and helped me bring you the match analysis like you have never seen it before.
