I am a former Teaching Professional, #1 Collegiate singles player and Twice Conference Champion at the University of Massachusetts. I have taken this experience and combined it with my 34 years of working one-on-one with tennis and raquet sport players at every level, helping them overcome performance slumps and blocks and perform to their potential to provide you with this powerful, mental toughness training program!
Alan, my daughter plays high level junior tennis in New England and hopes to get a scholarship. However, the part of her game that has always held her back is the mental side. When opponents cheated her or their parents made rude comments from the stands, she’d come unglued. She’d get so angry, upset and tight that her game would break down and she’d beat herself. I got her your new audio series several months ago and the change has been dramatic. She loves your teaching stories and has really taken to your methods, especially how to handle cheaters and distractions. Now instead of getting upset with an opponent who cheats, I see her smiling to herself! When that happens I know her opponent is done! Thank you! – Melissa, Rhode Island
- Do you consistently lose to weaker players?
- Do you have trouble concentrating?
- Is “choking” a close friend of yours?
- Do you play better in practice than you do in important matches?
- Do you have trouble closing out your sets and matches?
My son plays #1 singles for his high school team and has been struggling lately with his game and confidence. I got your tennis CDs at a conference for my own game and let him borrow them. I can’t believe the difference! He used to get upset with bad calls. He’d get down on himself and then give points away. Now he’s playing so much more confidently. I’ve never seen him miss shots and then immediately forget them! His coach is thrilled with the changes and wants the whole team to start listening. Only problem is I want my CDs back. – Barry T, Tucson, Arizona
In the heat of competition, the outcome of your matches is determined by what goes on between your ears. If you don’t consistently work on this mental part of your game, then you’ll always struggle with performance problems!
Dr. G! Awesome program. Easy for my kids to listen to, you’re a great story teller and your methods are solid. Your background as a #1 singles player and teaching pro give you the cred with my players so they are willing to listen to you. My kids have clearly benefited by how well they’re playing in tournaments! – Jack, Teaching Pro, Massachusetts

Dr. G, I first want to thank you. Just yesterday in a team match, our #6 on the men’s team won a huge match to give us a 5-4 win. He won 4 and 3 but it was not even close. He played nearly flawless at times and was just crushing the ball. He is a senior who has been plagued by self-doubt and a lack of confidence that has always kept him from playing his best tennis. Yesterday when his match was finished and I walked onto his court and told him how proud I was of his play, his exact words were “it is all because of those CD’s.” The second reason I wanted to contact you was to ask how we could get all of our men’s and women’s players the MP3 version of your program! It’s that top notch! Thank you again – Troy, College Tennis program, Michigan
