Nick Saviano - The Saviano Tennis Academy

Nick Saviano - The Saviano Tennis Academy

This week I speak to the man behind the world renowned Saviano Tennis Academy, Nick Saviano. Nick was a former top 50 player who quit tennis to start his own academy and has worked with some great players from a very young age to been in the players box on the Grand Slam finals day as well as securing places places for countless teenagers in top US universities.

We talk about

  • His academy
  • What it was like to be a Top 50 player in the 70's along with his most memorable match
  • Helping juniors on the big decision to go pro or to college
  • Working with Sloane Stephens as an 11 year old and the feeling of seeing somebody you have worked with win a Slam
  • Working with Genie Bouchard
  • How to get the most out of female players and how they mature quicker than the boys
  • The parents as a junior players CEO
  • Nick's new online course

We also have a question from one of our listeners.

I hope you enjoy the episode.
