Kristopher has have been playing competitive tennis for the last twenty-years. Four of these years he was on a collegiate team which was ranked in the top 20 in the nation for division II. He was ranked as high as 20 in the nation in doubles and in the top 40 in the nation in singles. Kristopher has also played professional tournaments on the challenger level and has held a world ranking in doubles on a few occasions. I know how hard you have to work both on the court and off the court at the collegiate level to achieve your goals as an athlete. This knowledge has also helped him have a successful career off the court as well.
Kristopher has coached many juniors over the years some of which have played at the high school, sectional, national, collegiate and professional levels.
As a coach he believes the ability to think outside the box and to problem solve is an essential trait to becoming a successful coach and seems to be the most important in the sense that everyone has a different background and can approach a simple or complex problem in a variety of different ways. You need to be able to approach everyone as an individual to see results and to fix problems and achieve goals.
Kristopher brings all of these experiences into his coaching philosophy both on and off the court to athletes to help them become ultimately successful at life.
