“Elson is honestly one of the best mentors I have ever had. There’s a reason all the Match Point alumni still feel so attached to the academy. It’s not just because of the tennis strategies or lessons Elson drilled into our heads; it’s because he taught us how to apply everything we learned to be a competitive tennis player to other aspects of our lives, whether it be the constant level of dedication and commitment one needs to master a skill or learning how to test your limits, both physically and mentally.”
