Craig Tiley, Tennis Australia CEO and Australian Open tournament director
Playing elite tennis can offer valuable life skills and provide a strong education and opportunities for networks, which can lay the foundations for a successful career. Navigating this path is difficult and Winning On and Off the Court is a valuable guide and resource for parents to help their children.
Mark Leschly, Universal Tennis Rating CEO
Tennis is the toughest and most competitive individual sport in the world. The important balance between fun and hard work, sensible planning and obsession is a tricky one even for an experienced coach, let alone a parent new to the sport. This book is a must for coach, parent and player alike.
Pat Cash, former Wimbledon champion
It's so important to develop the person holistically and instil character if you want a long career in tennis. Discipline and resilience may be the two defining characteristics that are most important provided you have the requisite skill set. Luke and Ryan present a balanced approach on the tennis journey. Success at any price is never worth it.
Wally Masur, former Davis Cup player and coach
Love of tennis is a great and life-long gift for a parent to pass on to a child. It's not only a sport that can be thrilling to play and exciting to watch, but can provide enjoyable physical exercise into your seventies. Moreover, it can forge a very special bond: I remember my own father most fondly for his support of my early tennis ambitions and have tried to emulate them with my son. So, I can recognise the importance of this book, in which Ryan and Luke explain, clearly and wisely, how parental support can best be offered for mutual benefit, whether games are won or lost, or those dreams of centre court ever come true. Every tennis mum and dad should read it if they want their child to get the best from this terrific sport.
Geoffrey Robertson, Order of Australia, QC
