Filipe is one of the best and most talented coaches I have ever met. He genuinely cares about his players and wants to help them to improve. We got together my first WTA points and it's a moment I will never forget. He helped me improve my game and get the scholarship to the university I wanted. If I were ever going on the tour again, he would be my first choice.

Nandini Sharma (currently playing college division 1 at UCF Orlando


Filipe helped form my children during the first years of their tennis and also later. and did a great job. He went with them to national and international tournaments and was always very professional. He is a demanding coach but also listens to his players' needs. He created a very good relationship with our family and helped to form our kids, as players but also as individuals.

Geraldine Dussaubat (mother of 2 players currently playing college tennis)


As a colleague I have to say Filipe is very dedicated and concerned with all the team, he was also a great leader when he was Head Coach. He always shares his knowledge with everyone so we can get better but also knows how to listen and learn from us. He is concerned and tries to help his work colleagues when necessary. As a coach he is very dedicated to his players inside and outside of the court. He tries to increase his knowledge every time he can by studying but also doing courses. He sees his players as individuals and adapts to each one of them. He is one of the best coaches that i´ve ever worked with.
