Wayne Ferreira, Semi-finalist Australian Open, 2003
“Jeff took my players’ biggest fear—looking bad when they make a mistake—and changed their focus from how they look to how they’re performing…and that instead of hiding from their feelings, they should use them to take a proactive stand instead of a reactive one.”
Peter Wright, Head Coach, UC Berkeley

players.”

Filip Brtnicky, ATP Player
“Jeff is the master of his teachings. The difference with him is that when he says he understands the pressures that come with playing, he actually does! In the short span of time I had the privilege of sharing with Jeff, I gained so much knowledge, all of which I will most definitely carry with me throughout my playing career.”
Beatrice Kight, ITF Player
“Jeff Greenwald is one of a kind in our sport. Jeff is a living example of a teacher who does what he asks others to do. Not only he is transforming himself as a competitor on tennis court, he is able to translate this knowledge to his students. He has a way of reaching people and the power to change lives by asking people to change the way they see themselves. Jeff inspires people to reach for their dreams and teaches them how to do it.”

Melinda Czink, WTA Player
