I am writing this letter to strongly recommend Robert Crnkovic. I have known Robert for the past thirty years, and I have been more than satisfied with both his professionalism as a tennis instructor and performance as a player and coach. As a tennis instructor, Robert is unique in his ability to recognize the area of an individual’s game that needs improvement and then give clear direction in a positive environment that results in noticeable improvements to the level of play in a short amount of time. As a player, Robert is vigilant on the court and one can easily tell that he has a vast knowledge base and experience with the game. He is a pleasure to play with and observe because his passion for the game is evident in how he puts his skills to work on the court.

I highly recommend Robert Crnkovic. I have known Robert for over 25 years as I interacted with Robert on a professional and personal levels. Throughout our career, his professional attitude and approach to tennis was outstanding. As a partner in our tennis academy (Porec Tennis Academy), Robert is teaching young players skills he developed and hones over the decades. Our cooperation started 15 years ago working with various top level juniors from which some of them went even into the professional top (Silvija Talaja- 18th WTA, Marin Čilić - 8th ATP ). Robert’s commitment and enthusiasm serve as an example to young players how to act and approach the sport of tennis. As a life-lifelong athlete, Robert is an active lecturer on the faculty of kinesiology at the University of Zagreb in Croatia. He not only lectures as a tennis professional, but also as a physical fitness specialist for tennis. As a former player and coach, he understands the specific complexity of the elements which are a dominant virtue of great players.

Ico Humić Director- Porec Tennis Academy


I am writing this reference at the request of Robert Crnkovic. I have known Robert for over 10 years in my capacity as a tennis professional and member of the Croatian Tennis Association. Robert is an exceptionally qualified tennis professional, who possesses a wealth of experience as a competitive player, coach and a tennis/fitness teacher. Robert 's experience, spanning from several decades of work in Germany and Croatia provided Robert with exceptional ability to bridge cultural divide among players and coaches from various cultures and enabled him to become successful everywhere he worked. Furthermore, his organizational capability as a business owner and managing director of an 8 court tennis center for the past 10 years demonstrated his entrepreneurial capacity and ability to continue his success off the tennis court. His work ethic, devotion to the sport of tennis, professional approach to teaching and coaching earned Robert a position of respect among his colleagues and players alike. In conclusion, I would highly recommend Robert. If his past performance is any indication of how he'd perform in the available position, Robert will be an extremely positive addition to your organization.
