Coach suggestions for Spring Break in Florida
 
If you were me and are coming to Florida during Spring Break (from the coaching desert of the *******) who would you have your 11 year old take privates (or groups?) with?

TCF is spot on!! Stay away from Macci and IMG.

Yeah, I am kind of over Macci now.

Only other coach I was considering was Mandy (Wilson?) who I saw doing a semi private at Evert in Aug. but I didnt want to pay for a week there to be "allowed" to do privates.

I was also thinking of Saviano but after watching a Tennis Channel Academy episode wasn't sure he'd be a good fit.

Thanks TCF. I will check him out your suggestion.

Thanks in advance to other responders?

Montana is out of Crandon Park you can hit on all 4 slam surfaces, and even rent stadium court for a small fee. Fires kids up.

We did do this per your suggestion in August and I believe, in retrospect, it was Montana who I saw doing group lessons.

Martin Blackman is also in the Boca area. Juan Nunez is now over at ZMG in Boca. He's worked with a few good girls back in the day (Sabatini, Sanchez-Vacario, Brenda Schultz).

Solomon, hands down. all top ranked players and excellent group of coaches besides Solomon. And yes, Solomon is on the court 90% of the week. Pulls players out for individual attention as needed, so no private lessons are ever necessary.

Thanks TCF but my involvement here will continue to be minimal as my evangelical fire is gone.

I'll drop you an email sometime. Would love to watch your kid hit.

I like the "no private lessons are ever necessary part " :-)

So I am starting to try and make plans to get my daughter some good coaching when we next visit Florida. I was told by the people at Saviano that I'd be lucky to get on half hour private with Nick. He only cares about his academy players. The rich get richer, the poor(ly coached) get poorer. In the meantime, waiting tomseenif Heath Waters was satisfied with my 11 y.o.'s answers on his screening questionnaire. In the meantime, my daughter's local coach has blown off requests for a second private during the week. Seems I can't give my (coaching) money away :-(

I saw a Colon Nunez at Nunez Tennis. Is he somehow related? If not where is he located?
