 Nikki says, “Training at the Sarasota Racquet Club is a great experience for me. My coaches Denys and Andrew understand what I need to do in order to play my best tennis. They say they are pleased that we are getting good results right now but they are working on giving me a full court game which will take many years to develop and that is their long term goal.”
