Methodology

The 4Slam Tennis Academy's methodology has been developed from a long experience on the ATP circuit. We believe in hard work with an individual approach. Each player follows their own personal plan prepared to include training goals and competitions for the year ahead.
At the commencement of your training 4Slam Tennis Academy will provide you with:
- An analysis of your technical and tactical tennis skills
- An initial test of your physical condition
- and a report on mental skills after a competitive event

Your annual goals will be set in conjunction with your coach, based on the following levels:
- Technical and tactical goals
- Physical training
- Competition targets
- Mental strength build

These will be reviewed quarterly, to address any needs and to re-evaluate your development and physical progress.
For monthly programs, an initial report will be given, as well as a final review including recommendations for future training.
The 4Slam Tennis Academy methodology is based on the concept that a player has to be in a top condition in the following three areas, in order to compete at a high ATP/WTA level:



Depending on the level of the player this process needs time, and a combined system of training, where technical/tactical skills, physical work and mental training are provided in all exercises.
