"I follow the news in the context of fitness training. We have done this analysis for hockey players. This is the first chance to do something for tennis. We had knowledge that TC EMPIRE Trnava club is progressing very well and that there is a group of people who want to create a serious academy. It has to be a unique project in Slovakia and should it go on like this, it would be unique also in whole Europe. I’m in a long-term cooperation with Vladimir Platenik whom I coached when he had been a tennis player. When he coached Cibulkova, Wickmayer, Petrova or Hercogova, I have always helped him. As he is going to cooperate with TC EMPIRE Trnava, the club approached to me and asked me if I were interested in the participation in creating a serious and world tennis academy.
