Orestis is een zeer begaafde trainer door zijn ervaring als (top)speler en zijn achtergrond als sportpsycholoog.
Orestis stelt zich voor:
Born and raised in Greece where I began my national and international career in competitive tennis. I was the national champion in juniors from under 10’s to under 16’s, traveled with the national team in several European Championships and the Youth Olympic Games. I have competed in the professional and D1 college level.
My coaching career started in the United States as an assistant coach for the University of North Carolina at Asheville. The pillars of my coaching methodology are interpersonal communication with the players, the establishment of a mastery-oriented climate where players engage in practice sessions with enjoyment, and the cultivation of mindful players who focus on the present moment without being judgmental. I am certified coach by the Global Professional Tennis Coach Association, which is powered by the ATP. During my coaching education, I have had the privilege to learn from major coaches on the tour including Tony Nadal, Alberto Castellani, Bogdan Obradovic. Additionally, I am pursuing my master’s in Sport Psychology at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam.
I am excited about my collaboration with the Inspire Top Tennis Academy because I admire the attention to detail the coaches offer to meet the individual needs of every avid young tennis player. From my turn, I am ready to join the team and guide young tennis players towards their own unique path to success as persons and athletes. See you on the court ☺
