Review for Seydou
Great coach, teaches technique and match-play well. Teaches very well and helps to identify errors and weaknesses in your game and then to fix them. Well worth the experience Sid S. San Jose, CA
My daughter (aged about eight years) went to different coaches before Seydou, and I was disappointed with the way they coached …I saw Seydou doing drills with another kid in Cupertino and immediately felt that he is very special … Its been about less than a year , my daughter is attending the tennis classes with Seydou and results are there to see .He is really a great coach and the best I have ever seen ..Seydou spends so much of time in fixing the basics and does amazing tennis drills which helped my daughter to enjoy tennis so much and after training with Seydou for less than a year, she is almost ready for the USTA (junior) tournaments …
I ( am about 4.0 USTA rating ) was so impressed with his training skills and started taking tennis classes myself . He quickly identified my issues with a backhand and served and spent so much good time in fixing them ..I highly recommend Seydou for tennis coaching classes for all the age groups .Thank you so much, Seydou !!!!!
