    How did you get involved in teaching tennis?   I had a close friend who was a Tennis Director and I
    found it was a very cool lifestyle and job to have....and
    I was right!
    Diehard fan of what sports team?   Brazil national soccer team
    Best part of your game?   Return of serve
    Dream doubles match would be me and....   Gustavo Kuerten
    When I'm not teaching tennis I'm.....   Playing soccer
    My favorite tennis memory is...  

    Playing national tournaments on red clay as a junior
    in Brazil

    My favorite pro player is....  

    Gustavo Kuerten

    #1 reason why I enjoy teaching & coaching tennis   I love to see students (adults & juniors) smile and have 
    fun while learning new skills and making friends.  Since
    tennis is a lifetime sport, when they grow older I want 
    them to remember the good times they had in the past.
    What important tennis message do you want to promote?  

    Tennis is not just about winning or being #1, it's about
    learning from each match, enjoying this beautiful game 
    and challenging yourself to continue to improve to be a 
    great competitor and a strong teammate.
