    Thanks tennisFan2day for the heads up. I have seen this myself. I think my daughter will handle it just fine since she is fairly thick skinned plus she got an ear full, big time from when she trained with Solomon last Summer. I think that the yelling somehow is a compensation for their shorter stature.
    Krienk expects as much from his students as he does of himself when they are on the court, but still treats them with respect. Once off the court he is very down to earth and great with the kids. He treats themall like family.

    wow... I'm gonna have to read more of what you post.. this is one of the best thing I've read here in a long while... this place needs more level headed parents to tell about their real world experiences ... too many over zealous/aggressive parents spoils it for me..

    ga tennis: I know your kid will turn out OK... after all.. it's only tennis..

    Yes, I've seen that with my daughter's experience with coaches as well.

    I guess this is a dumb question, but why can't one coach teach both serves and volleys plus ground strokes and footwork? Is one much better in one area?

    Both coaches are considered the best in their specialty, where we live.

    Thanks for the interview. Same politically correct information as everyone else though.

    I would have liked to find out what his training regimen as a junior was and what role his parents played in his development.

    I don't think you know what politically correct means. It is not just a synonym for non-controversial.
