This week on Functional Tennis, I meet legendary coach - Rick Macci for a fantastic chat.

In our conversation, Rick details his experience training Venus and Serena Williams when they were kids. Rick also shares the moment he was told they were making the film about the Williams sisters and their father King Richard - and what he felt like being portrayed on the big screen. Rick also gives some amazing advice for how players can recover from setbacks and much more.

Hope you enjoy it
