Great Tennis Podcast

Mehrban does a great job of finding guest to discuss tennis related topics! There have been many times I found great takeaways from guest. His technology related topics allowed me to discover swing vision and the Proton ball machine. Mehrban is also a very good tennis player! I had the chance to meet him and get to see him play at tennis con live last year.

Dedicated host with access to great guests!

Really enjoying the show. Plenty of excellent interviews along with tips and tricks for improving your game. Good stuff!

GT1only1 ,

The Best Tennis Podcast for recreational players trying to improve, here’s why:

Mehrban started interviewing top coaches so he could improve — we get the benefit.
His episodes cover all aspects of performance, Technique, Tactics, Mental, and Physical.
His guests all explain proven insights that apply to recreational players of every level.
He is an excellent host and has a smooth way of keeping the information flowing
He also makes sure that it is easy for us to absorb with clarifying follow-up questions.
Through this podcast and his annual summit with dozens of top coaches, I have been exposed to so many different perspectives on all aspects of playing — while I am not able to absorb nor implement it all, this has shown me a clear path forward for my own areas of improvement.
I cannot recommend the Tennis Files Podcast strongly enough. Please keep it up, Mehrban! Thank you
