First the man, then the player. It is not the tennis player who takes the court, but the person. Rome Tennis Academy starts with this assumption to support a 360-degree growth of the budding professional. The player is always the core of the project, because to reach a goal you have to improve, day after day, every aspect of yourself: technical, tactical, physical, mental and above all human. Rome Tennis Academy takes care of both sports and human growth of professionals or aspirants: this is how the dream comes true. Our watchwords are substance and work. Because tennis players are made, not born.
The RTA project starts with Vincenzo Santopadre and Stefano Cobolli: their aim is to continue the amazing job done by the Tennis School of the Circolo Canottieri Aniene of Rome. Tennis today requires a strong athletic, technical and mental training: in the wake of the professional growth of the top-10 player Matteo Berrettini, Rome Tennis Academy wants to create a team of experts: from the coach to the physiotherapist and the mental coach, specialists that take care of the future professional players in every step of the way. We start from the fundamentals to set up a human relation first, and then a professional one, aware that every great player is, first of all, a person.
