Why did you want to train this junior?

I was given a choice of athletes to work with within our National Program and Omar was one of the players I choose to work with because I believe in his ability and long term potential, I liked his personality as well as his personal qualities and also felt that he needed the most help and the most work if he was going to realize his big potential. I like a challenge as well as helping players become great and I believe he can and will if he puts in the work.

Since when do you train him?

January 2013,  however he has been in our Tennis Australia National Program for longer than that.

What’s his best strength / why ?

His Resilience, Stubbourness  (although at times very frustrating) and the future capacity he doesn’t even know he has yet.   His forehand is a weapon and will continue to get better, he can move exceptionally well and he “feels” and “reads” the game and “who’s doing what to who” very well.

A weak spot to improve?

Maturity and Professionalism with Consistent Quality of work on and off the Court.

What’s the key element he needs to be a top player ?

Maturity, Professionalism, Understanding of what it takes and what’s required and Increased work ethic in which he can get the most out of himself each and every day and learn to push himself beyond what he currently thinks is possible.

A fun/surprising anecdote to tell us about him?

We often call him “junior”  or  “Rookie” as he sometimes does some very funny, immature and stupid things like leaving his tennis shoes in the hotel room.

What do you tell him before entering the court ?

Depends on the day, the mood and who he’s playing but  “Consistent Effort” and “Composure in All situations” are common themes currently as well as to “get stuck in & Go after it”
