The Global Professional Tennis Coach Association (GPTCA) is an international organization dedicated to educating, training, and assisting professional tennis coaches who wish to evolve at the ATP World Tour level and those who want to work in women’s pro tennis. The GPTCA is represented in 40 countries through national presidents who are well-known and respected in the tennis coaching profession.
Founded on August 28, 2010, by 49 tour-level tennis coaches in a meeting at the famous Nino Tuscany’s restaurant in New York City, the GPTCA has continually worked to further the knowledge of tennis coaches who participate in the sport. In his first speech, Its president Alberto Castellani explained that the mission of the association was “to raise the standard of pro tennis coaching around the globe,” all thanks to the experience of the best ATP and WTA Tour coaches who share their knowledge with less experienced coaches.
To become an ATP-certified coach, the organization sets a strict criterion suitable for the various types of coaches such as ATP/WTA Top 1,000 players who worked at this level for at least two consecutive years, coaches of ITF Top 100 juniors who worked at this level for at least two consecutive years, coaches of professional teams such as University Federation or league teams who worked at this level for at least two consecutive years, former ATP/WTA Top 1000 singles players, and former ATP/WTA Top 500 doubles players.
Emir Hamzic’s dedication to the craft and solid experience in the world of tennis can more than vouch for his eligibility as a coach. Having been crowned as an All-American after winning the collegiate-level national championship at 20 years old and for playing on the pro-circuit, he has proven himself in the tennis arena. His career in coaching dates back to even deeper roots as he began his journey at only 17 years old. From this experience, he successfully worked independently with over 250 clients, allowing him to combine the best coaching styles, combining his profound knowledge of human physiology and personal experience in the tennis court. That said, the rising tennis star is welcomed by the ATP family as its latest certified international coach today.
