Anyone who follows tennis is familiar with the Bollettieri Tennis Academy --located in Bradenton, Florida--which has produced a who's who of modern major tournament winners. Here's a short list of players who attended the Bollettieri academy: Bjorn Borg, Boris Becker, Pete Sampras, Andre Agassi, Jim Courier, Mark Phillippoussis, Monica Seles, Martina Hingis, Anna Kournikova, Venus and Serena Williams and Maria Sharapova.

"In addition to becoming the best known and most successful tennis coach in the world, Bollettieri created the 'business model' for the camp/academy training experience. Short Time weeks and Holiday/Summer camp sessions make the 'Academy' environment available to students of all ages and abilities. By combining specialized performance (fitness) training and mental conditioning programming with the technical training on court, the Bollettieri team builds athletes who thrive in the competitive arena. In other words, the NBTA produces players who could play, rather than just players who look great hitting a ball. As a result, Nick and the NBTA dominates tennis training."
