David has spent 30 years studying the footwork and movement patterns of the top tennis professionals. He has viewed over 10,000 video clips of professional players in action – carefully observing and documenting their precise movements.
Based on this research, he has developed a progressive teaching method that is cutting edge, in one of the most complex and misunderstood aspects of the game – movement and footwork.
David has consulted and trained players across the globe, he is a regular presenter at coaching conferences and clinics around the world, he writes frequently for some of the Industry’s most respected media platforms – including tennisplayer.net and TennisPro Magazine – and his revolutionary program has been referenced in the New York and London Times.
David has been the movement and footwork consultant and trainer to over 21 professional Grand Slam players, including:
Monica Seles, Jelena Dokic, Bethanie Mattek-Sands, Johanna Konta, Shaui Zhang, Vince Spadea, Jarmila Wolfe, Misaki Doi, Catalina Castano, Anne Keothavong and Andrew Ilie.
“Dave is a pioneer, a specialist who has developed a language and a method that is cutting
edge. This will revolutionize the way in which footwork will be taught in the future and the
impact and the benefits of this will trickle down from the players to the coaches.”
Simon Walsh, Professional Tennis Coach on the WTA
