Please be advised that as a lifetime tennis player, I would like to highly recommend Elena Pogorelova as an excellent hitting instructor coach. She is highly attentive to the student needs and I observed that she is equally qualified and patient with both young children and adult students. Her professionalism as well as her previous world tennis ranking and multilingual skills are very positive attributes to her background. She is and can remain valuable asset to any Tennis Club or Academy. I would highly recommend Elena.
