Where is your favorite place to play tennis in Hong Kong? What makes this place special? For me nothing can beat Peak School. The quiet peaceful surroundings make it quite unique for Hong Kong, and on a perfect weather day you have an awesome view and sunset.
If you could play on any court with any player, where and who would it be with? And why? Rafael Nadal, Court Philippe Chatrier (Paris, French open). I’ve always loved playing on clay as clay was my home clubs surface back in Perth Australia. I love the ability to be able to slide on a clay court as well as the battle of trying to beat an opponent on the clay surface. So it would be phenomenal playing against Rafa on a court he’s been so dominant on and seeing how i went.
Your current favorite tennis player? Andy Murray.
Your favorite player of all time and why? Marat Safin, I always found him to be super entertaining to watch, and he had a game which i tried to replicate.
Why do you make a great tennis coach? Outside the box thinking and in depth technical explanations. I want all my students no matter the age, to be able to enjoy the game of tennis and to rally against friends or family members. Learning the art of rallying begins with the correct technique for your groundstokes, both your forehand and Backhand. I make sure that all my students technique is perfectly sound so that when it comes time to begin rallying they can do so without falling into old habits.
When teaching your students, which shot is your specialty? Serve.
What is your favorite tennis mantra? Footwork is the most important part of tennis.
