"Coach Ilja is one of the most hard working coach my kids have worked with. He is highly skilled on greatbase coaching and has a way connecting with kids of all ages. He is tough and instills life values that a successful tennis player needs. His main strength is to distill the technicalities of the game down to the simplest form for players across the spectrum. He is total-package COACH, hard working, deep technical knowledge and the right balance of being a disciplinarian and a coach. The kids love him!"
