More About Coach David

I believe experience counts, and I bring a world of coaching know-how and depth to developing not only world class junior players but players of all levels by creating individualized programs that hone technical, physical and, above all, the mental attitude of my students. This holistic approach benefits the player by unleashing their full potential. I have a distinctive and unique mentoring style, combined with a proven coaching philosophy that recognizes the skill and maturity level of each student in order to develop winners.

My talent was developed by the legendary Lew Hoad, considered by most experts as one of the best player of all times. During my five year apprenticeship with Lew Hoad I experienced first hand the intricate ways of analyzing the game through the eyes of a true master and I have continuously expanded this skill.

During my career as a coach, I was the head pro at Ion Tiriac’s International Tennis School in Wiesbaden, Germany, and attended Tiriac’s seminars on a regular basis at the French Open and other Pro Tournament venues. This gave me the opportunity to work with world-ranked players such as Boris Becker, Guillermo Vilas, Henri Leconte, Goran Ivanisivic as well as a large group of international celebrities. I went on to establish “David Rees Professional Tennis Coaching” in Germany where my clientele included students from all over the globe. I am also fluent in English and German.

Client Reviews

I met David while staying at the Ritz and was immediately impressed. Within moments, I knew that David was someone who I could work with. Since then I have been working with David for several months and have seen my tennis game improve by orders of magnitude. David not only has a great eye for tennis but he has a fantastic ability to work within skill level of the player he is coaching understanding the mental aspect of the game. In addition to the teaching of sound tennis fundamentals he takes his time with me and adjusts the lesson depending on my state of mind at that particular moment and the level of improvement I have made from the previous week. I truly feel honored and privileged to be working with someone of David’s caliber and experience.
I’ve had a lot of instruction over the past 15 years – some of it, excellent – but NOTHING can compare to yours. I’ve improved more in the last four days with you than I have in the last 6 months. Your lessons have been the highlight of my visit to Sarasota. I’m looking forward to coming back for more.
David Rees is an extraordinary tennis professional for three important reasons. Firstly, he has a lifetime of high level experience in the U.S. and in EU with top ranked players. Secondly, he thinks about each student and sees critical and subtle aspects of their game with the objective of meaningful improvement. Lastly, David is a great communicator and lovely person. These gifts are what separate him from the great numbers of pros I have met over the years. He is passionate about teaching.
