“Apart from the topic of training, it is very easy to have a genuine conversation with Nick, which is very important to every player. I have a special memory of this one training in Rogla at -10 degrees, when Nick was training next to me the whole time, instead of standing aside and giving instructions.”
Mario Ančić, client, tennis player


“The combination of Nick’s training methods and my play, brought amazing results! We make a great team!”
Donna Vekić, client, tennis player

‘Coaching is not something you do, it is something you are’

Coaching is a process used for transporting people from where they are to where they want to be. Professional tennis coaching became far more integrative than X’s & O’s on the court. Without setting an example and high standards, inspiring, looking at the bigger picture, it is very difficult to get the player’s respect. I believe that doing everyday things with high focus and energy constantly raises the standards for you and for people around you.
