On Episode 112 of The Tennis Files Podcast, I spoke with WTA Tour coach and tennis analyst Marc Lucero about how he went from law-school dropout to coaching and commentating at the highest levels of the game.
Marc currently coaches WTA Pro Shelby Rogers, who has been ranked as high as 48 in the world. He has also worked with a slew of elite world-ranked players such as Sam Querrey, Eugenie Bouchard, Ryan Harrison, Nicole Gibbs and Alison Riske. Marc is a solid player himself, having played Division I tennis at Boston College.
On top of coaching professional tennis players, Marc founded RAMP Tennis, a tennis training program for junior players. And he co-founded First Break, a 501 c3 non-profit tennis academy for all levels and age groups in Los Angeles. Marc and I also have something in common (besides our dashing good looks 🙂 ): he also attended law school, although for only a year before choosing to become a full time tennis coach.
On the show we cover how Marc was able to quickly rise through the coaching ranks by taking advantage of opportunities and surrounding himself with the right people, key tips to help you improve your game, financial arrangements between coaches and players, what it's like for both parties when the relationship ends, the ups and downs of coaching on the tour, and more!
I am really glad that I met Marc at the Citi Taste of Tennis event in DC and that we made this interview happen a couple months later!
