Legendary tennis coach and icon Nick Bollettieri sadly passed away in December 2022, but his impact on his students, coaches, and the entire tennis community will live on forever.
For this episode, I have resurrected my 2019 interview with Nick about how to achieve your dreams and help those around you reach their true potential.
Nick had over 60 years of unrivaled experienced coaching the world’s best tennis players. He founded the Bollettieri Tennis Academy, where he worked with such players as Andre Agassi, Monica Seles, Jim Courier, Serena and Venus Williams, Mary Pierce, Maria Sharapova, Martina Hingis, Anna Kournikova, Marcelo Rios, Kei Nishikori, and Boris Becker, just to name a few.
Nick also co-founded the nonprofit fitness camp, Camp Kaizen with his wife Cindi. He wrote for tennis magazine as an instruction editor and was featured in tv series and documentary films. Nick was also a very accomplished author, having written numerous books, including Bollettieri’s Tennis Handbook, My Aces My Faults, and a recent Biography entitled Bollettieiri - Changing the Game. On top of all this, Nick was inducted in the International Tennis Hall of Fame and told me that he has been inducted into 12 others as well.
On the show we cover the mindset you must have to achieve your goals, why every top performer has a great team behind that person, why you must get to know your students if you want to help them reach their true potential, Nick’s exercise routine at 88 years old, and much more!
