Vic Braden has touched many tennis players lives. He was an innovator, tennis coach and the nicest person you could ever meet. I have never had a chance to meet him in person, but I did have email email conversations with him. I first notice his name When I first started playing tennis, and my first tennis book.
Like if you want to hear my story.

Okay I liked it. Tell your story!
Well, Vic Braden was my first and only coach. He showed me how to pronate and hit serves without jumping. My dad took me to his Coto de Caza retreat for 5 days.
Little did I know Vic Braden was spying on me while I was hitting backhands on a drill machine. He came out to tell my dad and I that I had the "most beautiful backhand!" Then he told me to model it with a slight loop like Edberg's.lol
I will always remember Vic kneeling on his knees and hitting a serve in front of everyone that was well over 100 mphs. It was a solid thundering crack!
