Hello! My name is Andre Szilvassy, I am a semi-professional tennis player and high performance tennis coach, living out the grind, and what a grind it is.
I wish to share the experiences I have as a player with the juniors of today, specifically on the mental side. Every tennis player on this planet experiences nervousness, anger, helplessness and much more. I seek to explore why a player feels the way they do and how that affects their performance, but more importantly their relationship with the game. My goal is to collaborate with players to find individual routines (pre-match, during, and post-match) which will help them work with their emotions to perform better and enjoy the grind longer.
Aforza has a great culture, one that is growing and one that I look forward to adding to!
