    Okay so I talked to my coach and he told me to go to Spain if I wanted the best tennis academy experience. Well that's kind of hard for two weeks, and my mother would have to go, and it would be really boring for her to be by herself for such a long time, and basically be surrounded by people she cannot communicate with.. However I will be going to Sanchez-casal next summer for two weeks or which ever academy is *poppin* with the top juniors, because some of them tend to move around. So for this Summer I will be going to Florida to get in some good training. I am a really passionate tennis player, I'm 15 and i've been rated by a coach that I am at the 5.5 level. I would like to hear your experiences with academies around Florida.

    I'm looking for the best improvement possible, no matter how hard it is. I don't really care, I just want to up my game to that next level.

    Thank you so much.

    I've been searching this for a long time, and have gotten so many mixed reviews.

    I've already heard abut Bollettieri numerous times, but I'm not really sure what to believe. I've heard that people have come back from their training and have improved greatly, and people pissed because they didn't get onto the "top court" to train with the "gifted" players.

    I've also heard about Saddlebrook, Evert, and sanchez-casal.

    I'm leaning towards Bollettieri and Sanchez-Casal Naples.

    I also want to make sure that the compettition is really good, and I will be playing some top knotch juniors.


    THANKS AGAIN. Sorry for the long post, I just have to get everything in.

    I think Justine Henin and her coach have an academy in FL that she participates in on a regular basis.

    I believe that you'll get the best at Sanchez in Naples. Very hands on, and good individual attention.
