“Over the past twenty-five years of playing and coaching tennis, I have learned that it takes desire, dedication, and determination to be a successful tennis player. It’s not always the best athlete who excels but rather the player that loves the game for what it is. I enjoy teaching all levels of players, from beginners to the most advanced. I see powerful lessons in the game of tennis. Things don’t always fall your way, for example; but as long as you continue to work hard and strive for your best, good things will happen. You must love the battle more than the victory.” Craig A. Jones
