Patrick’s training curriculum vitae contains many high profile players of the calibre of Grigor Dimitrov and Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova, who, with the help of his training methodology, have achieved magnificent results in their career. In addition, since 2012 he has trained Serena Williams, a player who is without doubt one of the best female tennis players in history.  His particular way of seeing tennis, and a key point to his success, is that he considers his academy not just a school of tennis, rather a school of life, where tennis players should focus not only on improving their technique but also their values, training and personality. Because of this, the Mouratoglou academy has its own school where the younger players can combine their tennis coaching with their academic studies. The school offers educational programmes from 6th grade (11 years) up to 12th grade and there is also a postgraduate programme.

The academy’s students can be accommodated in its modern residence located on the site.  With its outstanding tennis coaching and academic facilities, together with the Riviera location which offers 300 days of sun each year the Mouratoglou Tennis Academy is, all in all, a wonderful place for young aspiring tennis players to spend time improving their game.
