This week is a bit different to our usual weekly interviews. Recently I was away at the IMG Future Stars which features some of the best under 12's in the world. With an idea from a previous guest I decided to document what I find makes these great tennis kids so good. I was there for a full week and it wasn't a usual tournament where the players and team would leave early if beaten so I got a good chance to watch/learn and listen and gather my thoughts.

These may not be new ideas but they are definitely a reminder of why these kids are so good.

A big thanks to IMG for having me at the event and to the Tatoi Club in Athens for offering their beautiful facilities.

I hope you enjoy the episode.
