Länge: 55:45
Rick Macci is a very well known name in the tennis world.
He is a legendary coach who owns and operates one of the most famous tennis academies in the world in Boca Raton, Florida (the Rick Macci Tennis Academy).
USPTA Hall of Fame Tennis coach 
USPTA Master Professional
Seven-time USPTA national coach of the year
Trained five number one ranked players: Andy Roddick, Jennifer Capriati, Maria Sharapova, Serena Williams, and Venus Williams. And coached many other great juniors and top professionals.
Owner of the Rick Macci Tennis Academy, where he currently still coaches 50 hours a week!
Rick was crucial in the development of Venus and Serena Williams. He worked with their father Richard Williams and coached them in the early nineties at his academy in Florida.
Rick is also one of the main characters in the recently released movie "King Richard" which is about the Williams family and their early development with Rick Macci. The movie has already gained great reviews and is an incredible story even for people who do not follow tennis. Richard Williams is played by Will Smith and the movie may be nominated for several Oscars!
Rick Macci is also very well known for his coaching videos, video analysis, zoom virtual lessons etc...His technical instructional videos are a must watch (I highly recommend them!). All videos can be viewed on youtube at Rick Macci Tennis.
This is from his website (www.rickmacci.com):
"Rick’s experience over the past 40 years in molding a player is unmatched by any teacher in the world. As a USPTA Master Professional, Rick trains other tennis pros and coaches how to teach, motivate and communicate with their students to “deliver the goods”. Experts agree that Rick’s insight to explaining and presenting the psychological triggers of an athlete is a gift that very few coaches’ possess and can deliver."
