It is harder than you would think to find a tennis coach who will take on a toddler. Sure, Miss Gemma at Tiny Tot tennis at the Garden Avenue Park will toss a few balls across the net at them once as week, but Hummus is such naturally gifted athlete that he needed a slightly more intense program. I was so lucky to find Stanislaus Wrobninski. I am not sure where he is from, but he ran a tennis academy somewhere in Eastern Europe that trained many children. His program was very successful, but the government shut him down for being “too intense” or something.
Anywho, he has a cute lil’ tennis program only 20 minutes away and he allowed Hummus to be his youngest student. Hummus just loves the program and spends 5 hours day there Monday Through Friday working with nutritionists, trainers and motivational specialists, along with a variety of tennis coaches. The second Hummus gets in the car after I pick him up, he falls fast asleep and often just sleeps right through to the next morning. It is adorable!
I am hoping that once Röbert sees his lil’ guy in a tournament, he won’t freak out too much about the expense. You need to spend it to make it, and I would love it if one of my angles and I could travel the world and go to classy places like Paris and Wimbledon.
