I believe that nothing comes without hard work and dedication. The more you practice the better you get. I started to play in Spain when I was 5 years old. I therefore definitely think mental and physical abilities are key in tennis. You need to be willing to stay tough to win. I think that you also need to use your strengths, we all have different qualities that we need to highlight. Finally, don’t forget about having fun. If you like playing tennis, enjoy it alone or with your friends and you will improve quickly."

My tennis philosophy is very simple: talent is useful but hard work and determination are necessary. I always tell my players you are not only players but you are also students. If you take the time to study every aspect of your game then the results will come to fruition. I believe every time you step off the court you should leave feeling like a better player then when you stepped on the court."
