Kavala1 ,

This is the best tennis podcast by a country mile

Some teaching pros are forever instructing the result they want. Better instructors find ways to tell you the steps to make that happen.

This is the better instructor version of podcasts: on shot and movement technique, tactics and strategy.

And its entertaining too.

Old Mumbler ,

Nicest guy in podcast land

Great shows with excellent content. Mehrban has to be one of the nicest guys you’ll hear on a podcast.
