PHILOSOPHY
Tennis is a real-life school. In order to graduate, one needs to pass these courses:

• Discovering yourself
• Conquering you fears
• Expanding your borders
• Controlling your thoughts and behaviors
• Improving your ethics

The exams are performed during match play; because match courts are mirrors reflecting our personality. Victories and defeats can never determine one's value.No point, no match, however important, no championship can ever deserve more than how much it develops our personality. All effort, money and time spent in this school comes back to nurture our personality with interest.
