TESTIMONIALS

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY

?Working with Stef has been great. Especially in this time of COVID, it?s been hard for me to keep my game sharp with the lack of tournaments. Stef?s camps have attracted the top players in the Central Coast and have been incredibly helpful in maintaining my game through drills and match play, but more importantly, taking my game to the next level. A highlight of Stef?s camps has been the mental training sessions where we discuss sports psychology and how to handle nerves in match situations. Another huge part of the camp is the 1-hour fitness session at the end of our two-session tennis practice, where we do intense footwork and cardio on the beach or court that pushes my physical and mental toughness.

?Stefan offers the whole package. On top of being an exceptional tennis player that has provided valuable insight on my game, the biggest thing that has separated him from any other person I have worked with is the fact that he instills in his players the significance of off-court training. Stefan stresses the importance of breath-work, flexibility, strength training, and eating a balanced diet, all of which are very necessary to maximize player potential. His desire to go the extra mile with these difference makers is what makes him such a desirable coach.?

Kyle Garner

US Air Force Academy Men?s Tennis

"Stefan?s coaching and friendship has helped me grow tremendously as a person. It?s always super refreshing to be around someone who is constantly striving for self improvement in all aspects. Being around Stefan during winter break before my final dual season was really helpful in me reaching my tennis potential. Stefan?s holistic approach helped me improve in areas both on and off the court that I previously would have never thought of. I always have fun with Stefan during his training camps because we?re always getting better at something and his mentality is a super great energy to be around. Super grateful for Stefan as a coach, teammate, and friend.?

?I first got to know Menichella at Pepperdine when he was an incoming freshman and I was a senior. He was a good teammate to have because he was a hard worker and was a supportive team player. I knew that?ll transfer to other aspects of his life including coaching me on tour. He?s always looking to help in any way he can while maintaining a progressive mindset."
