Important Lessons for Juniors with Pablo Andujar and Kenneth Carlsen [Ep.214]
Last week I got to spend the week at the Tecnifibre junior training camp in Valencia. Tecnibifre brought 5 of their juniors running from 11-16 years of age along with their parents and coaches for a week-long training camp. Their objective for to push the players outside their comfort zone on and off the court as well as give them advice which will be invaluable in their junior career. Tecnifibre wants to help these players as much as possible make the transition to the senior game.Leading the on-court sessions was former world number 32 Pablo Andujar and there also was former world number 41 Kenneth Carlsen who was there as a coach with a player. Both were so nice, full of advice, open to any questions and told great stories of life as a junior and on the tour.This episode is them talking about their experience as a Junior, lessons they learned, advice for the juniors and the 5 juniors who got to ask them a question.You could say this is an unplanned episode but the advice was so good I felt it had to be shared.I hope you enjoy it.FabioPs.

Matt Terczynski, Hitting Partner of Hubi Hurkacz [Ep. 208]
This week on the podcast we have Matt Terczynski. Matt is a long time friend and permanent hitting partner of top 20 player Hubi Hurkacz. It was great speaking with Matt as he gives in depth insights into the life of a pro hitting partner, as well as some really useful advice for those players and parents who are starting out on their journey in elite tennis. Matt loves competing and managed to earn a spot in the Boss Open ATP 250 in Stuttgart last year, so he sure has the level to be playing with the top of the game. We discuss: Great start with Hubi as his hitting partnerWhy would a player have a hitting partnerThe mindset of Hubi HurkaczWhy it is important to feel stress in match situations instead of just practicing The key to being a hitting partner!Advice to players/parents on becoming great playersThis episode is awesome and Matt is a great guy so hope you enjoy!FabioHave you seen the Functional Tennis Saber?
