I started playing tennis at the age of 5 and it suddenly became my first love, significantly influencing my personal development and shaping the individual I am today.

My first coaching experience happened at the age of 17, as I was a seasonal tennis instructor at an Italian beach resort. Throughout my college years, I nurtured my passion for teaching by providing lessons during my spare time. Upon graduation, I focused on coaching high-performance junior players, ultimately transitioning into the role of an international travel tennis coach. I further enriched my experience by assuming responsibilities as a club tennis coach, resulting in five years of extensive coaching experience.

Mariacristina is an exceptional coach. She is highly technically proficient and possesses the ability to observe you, actively listen to your needs, and tailor drills accordingly. Often, she improvises exercises on the spot to achieve immediate improvements. Her creativity is remarkable. She is deeply focused on addressing your individual requirements, making each lesson truly exceptional. I consistently felt fulfilled and satisfied under her guidance. Moreover, she excels as a motivator, providing an incredible boost, and her compassionate nature is truly commendable. In all my years in tennis, I have yet to encounter a coach like her.

Testimonial

Mariacristina has been one of the most important coaches for me, not only in terms of tennis technique or tactics but also on a personal level. She assisted me with anything, whether it was tennis-related or personal. Throughout the tournaments we attended worldwide, she has become my best friend and the best coach. Often, it seemed like she cared about my matches even more than I did personally, which is incredible. She prepared me not only physically but also mentally for the challenges I had to face and ensured that I was aware of my abilities.

Testimonial

Mariacristina is an awesome coach, always on top of her game and super motivated. Not only she shared many of great tips during our practice sessions, she's been a huge help off-court as well, especially with nutrition and fitness. Her knowledge in those areas gave me the missing piece I was looking for, as I'm finally feeling way more fit and energetic on court. If you're looking for a coach with a 360-degrees approach, she would definitely be you best choice.
