“Tennis is a mental game. Everyone is fit, everyone hits great forehands and backhands.” Novak Djokovic
What does it take to get to the same level of competition as Djokovic, Murray or Nadal?
A comprehensive training method is essential to take a player to the top of the tennis pyramid, the elite stage only a few of the thousands talented tennis players who dream to reach the top 100 attain. At Academia Sánchez-Casal, we use our own training method, the ASC 360 Performance System, which is universally effective in helping its students- athletes achieve their best tennis level. This system has been used by professional ATP tennis players such as Andy Murray, Grigor Dimitrov, Juan Monaco, and WTA players such as Svetlana Kuznetsova, Daniela Hantuchova, Tamira Paszek and more.
The ASC 360 Performance System operates within four theoretical pillars (technical, tactical, physical and mental) and makes them work in a coordinated fashion with one ultimate objective: to push players to achieve maximum performance by reaching their ideal competitive state in both training and competition.
In the recent $15,000 Sánchez-Casal Men’s Futures, held at the Academia Sánchez-Casal headquarters in Naples, Emilio Sánchez interviewed Seed N1 and tournament Singles Champion Javier Marti, a Spanish player who reached world N 170 in 2012 and was forced to retire for some years due to an elbow injury. Marti came back to the circuit reinforced. 2017 was one of his best seasons, after going up 500+ places in the ATP ranking, winning 2 $25,000 and 5 $15,000 ITF tournaments, and a total of 61 matches out of the 78 he played. How did they analyze the 4 pillars of tennis?
