As a tennis head coach of the TTL-Club, I have had the opportunity to recognize the potential of my students and make a difference in their lives and their choices. I have known Petar Leontikj for more than 10 years now and what has never changed over that period has been his sincere desire to make progress in the tennis sport and the enormous hard work he has done in order to achieve that, driven by an incredibly strong will and determination. In our work together, he always showed nothing less than hard work, high commitment, continuous progress in improving his tennis skills and ability which in time transformed into high-level professionalism achieved by a professional daily training process and tournament program. His physical, emotional and social skills allowed him to easily fit in the training environment and, as a very coachable student, he always showed high interest in learning. Petar’s ambitions and endurance kept him going during the tough training period which incorporated very intense on-court practice and off-court conditioning. As a result, he entered Macedonia’s tennis elite by ranking 9 in 2011. This success of his did not remain unnoticed by the Macedonian Tennis Federation, since he got numerous invitations to compete in tennis tournaments organized by the MTF. Each tournament that he participated in he took as a new challenge which he successfully completed so I am proud to point out a few of them. In 2009, he got in the finals of the Club Championship winning the second place in the group of participants 10&under, and in 2010 he won the Club Championship in the same group. He was an active participant in summer tennis camps that took place in Ohrid, R.Macedonia in 2007, 2008, 2010, 2011 and as well in international tennis summer camps that took place in Greece, in 2013,2014 and 2015. Last, but not least, Petar's positive attitude and self-motivation always had an excellent influence over the rest of the students, always motivating and supporting them to aim higher and achieve more. I strongly affirm that Petar Leontikj would be a great asset to any team, organization or school. My school benefited from his participation and presence and I immensely appreciate his effort and time spent in my school.
