Regarding MTM Philippe says, "It is by far the best encyclopedia of tennis, teaching how to "cure" young nervous players and how to motivate gamers for better results!.  I bought MTM's dvds and book in 2010 and Mr Oscar's techniques helped me a lot. I have been teaching MTM 's game of simplicity ('find it, feel it and finish it’) for better tennis with no anxiety and more control. Since teaching according to MTM's training principles I am hearing “Congratulations, Coach!" from all my students in tournaments and also from young players training with me both daily and weekly."
