This week we speak to tennis parent & former pro, Julia Efremova. Julia is the mother of Ksenia Efremova, an 11-year old who is widely regarded as a future tennis star! Julia and her family live at the Mouratoglou Tennis Academy in France 💪

We talk:

  • Julia's tennis career
  • Moving to the Mouratoglou Tennis Academy
  • Her typical day
  • Ksenia's goals
  • Dealing with pressure
  • Julia is the first tennis parent that we have had on the podcast & it was really nice to be able to hear about her story - albeit from a slightly different perspective than we are used to 🙌

Hope you enjoy it & let us know what you think!
