Tony Roth is The Director of Tennis at The Ottawa Athletic Club, a Provincial and National Level 4 Tennis Canada Coach. He wrote the book Noble Tennis, received his MA Philosophy Degree at Queens University and is widely considered one of Canada's most elite coaches and tennis thinkers. In this podcast we discuss his upbringing and first taste of tennis on Lake Simcoe in Ontario and how he became the player and coach he is today to be able to provide players the framework, wisdom and tools to solve the endless riddle that tennis presents.
Steve Smith has coached tennis for over 40 years, in 30 different countries. To say he is a legend of the game is an understatement. When I met him in 2010 after spending just one day with him from 7am until midnight without taking a breath I knew right then and there I was in the presence of tennis greatness. In this podcast we talk about how the phone is the enemy, how if a player can't string a racket, they really can't call themselves a player and how he has overcome his own setbacks in his career.
