Ed Dancsak :

Ed Dancsak

Ed has a very positive outlook on coaching tennis. He became a coach because he wanted to pass on his knowledge of the game to others. He was first inspired to play tennis when he saw Andre Agassi playing Jimmy Connors in the 1989 US Open. He still remembers watching Agassi lose the third set and then come back to win the match in the fifth set. The match finished at midnight, nevertheless Ed and his friend still went out and began playing tennis for the first time. It’s this kind of enthusiasm that Ed wants to share with his students.
