On Episode 113 of The Tennis Files Podcast, I spoke with legendary coach Nick Bollettieri about how to achieve your dreams and help those around you reach their true potential.
Nick has over 60 years of unrivaled experienced coaching the world’s best tennis players. He founded the Bollettieri Tennis Academy, where he has 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 writes for tennis magazine as an instruction editor and has been featured in tv series and documentary films. Nick is 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!
Nick also has a new book coming out soon and read us a preview of one of the chapters on the podcast! Nick has teamed up with Tennis Channel to produce the book and I’ll be sure to give you a heads up when it is available!
I am really pleased that Nick and his manager Steve made this interview happen so quickly after the Open, and I look forward to doing a part 2, Q&A style!
