Simone Vagnozzi - Tour Coach

This week we speak Italian Simone Vagnozzi, former pro player and ATP coach of Stefano Travaglia.

Simone retired as a player at age 31 and has been coaching on the tour for the past 5 years. I've been following his Instagram account @SVTennisTeam for a while now and he puts out some good content.

We talk about:

  • Why there are so many good Italian Pro players
  • What is special about top players
  • Working with Stefano Travaglia
  • Beating Djokvoic at Roland Garros when coaching Marco Cecchinato
  • Learning from Medvedev
  • Working with top Juniors and long term planning
  • His new academy
