"The best coaches are those who combine creative instruction with electric motivation. A coach must have the ability to teach basic facts and skills, as well as the capacity to inspire athletes to perform at their very best. This is what separates Nick Bollettieri from others. His passion for tennis is infectious. His determination to produce a champion’s best is well documented."
Dick Enberg, CBS Sports announcer
