I was the personal coach of Denis Shapovalov from the age of 13 to 17 and a half. In that time I was able to help develop Denis from no junior and pro ranking points to the #2 junior in the world and #240 ATP along with many accomplishments along the way. I'm currently working with the top two U16 boys in Canada. 


I was fortunate to meet Nandor while I was on tour with Denis Shapovalov while playing his first cycle of futures. Nandor was coaching another player and our two players met and played doubles for the first time together and won the doubles title. 


I was able to spend a lot of time with Nandor at his academy Veres Tennis, in Lakeworth Florida. We became good friends and I was able to really learn a lot from him. He's got a great eye for high performance. Nandor's knowledge of the game is quite extensive as he's worked with and developed many top 100 players. Also Nandor has a great passion for tennis in general and is highly involved with all levels of kids at his Academy. 


Nandor gave me some great advice when i was there with Denis. I also recently brought a few boys that I’m currently working with for a few weeks to train at his academy so that I can receive his feedback and guidance.


There are very few coaches that I would trust completely however, I would trust Nandor with any evaluations and recommendations with my players.  

I would recommend Nandor in all aspects of tennis from coaching players to coaching the educators.
