This week I speak to world-renowned coach Riccardo Piatti. 

Riccardo has been working as a coach for 40 years and has a wealth of experience working at the top of the game from junior to senior level.

Riccardo has worked with great players such as Ivan Ljubicic, Maria Sharapova, Milos Raonic, Borna Coric, Jannik Sinner, Novak Djokovic, and Richard Gasquet as well as having numerous great young juniors at his center in northern Italy.

We chat about:

  • Where coaching started for him
  • The Piatti center, model and method
  • His willingness to learn from people younger and older form him
  • Importance of video
  • What he looks for in juniors 

as well as some anecdotes from players he has worked with.

It's a super chat which I hope you will enjoy.
