My favorite sports memory/moment/event is….. when I played in the U12 Junior European Championship final, This was my first international event and also the start of my career as an Elite Player in Europe. This was the first time I experienced the feeling that Tennis was my destiny.
I started playing at the age of 5 in my home country Georgia. Since the very first day Training, Competing and now Coaching I have committed to this wonderful sport as my chosen Lifestyle.
Academically I hold a degree in Sciences and Journalism and also Primary Education. I have worked in Primary Education simultaneously with my Coaching Career.
As a Player I held the National number 1 Ranking in Georgia in all Junior Age Groups from 12 Under to 18 Under. Some special points are -
With my playing career ending in 2013, I moved to Professional coaching in both Europe and USA. My Philosophy is based on Discipline, Hard Work and Passion for the game. I ask players to follow my lead in Energy, commitment and I try to help them to understand that giving all they have will lead to great pleasure throughout their Tennis Career.
