Play like the pros with Oscar Wegner's revolutionary Modern Tennis Methodology

These Top Players play Modern Tennis Methodology

Learn what changed tennis around the world, exemplified by: Serena Williams, who learned with this system as a very young child and is still #1 and the best female player ever, and her sister Venus, top player as well. Roger Federer, who has Oscar's book and the two Master Strokes videos since 2005. Spain as a country, where Oscar changed the coaching system in the National School in Barcelona, resulting in a multitude of top players from Spain. Coaches in Moscow, influenced by Oscar's 1989 book, started young kids with these techniques. From one program, Russia, in 2003, had five players (who started in the same academy) in the top ten women in the world. Belgrade coaches, who had Oscar's book in 1991, developed several top players as well, three of them top five pros. Oscar's ESPN International commentary and tips for Latin America for 6 years revolutionized coaching there, producing more top ranked players, especially in Argentina, Oscar's birthplace. But ESPN domestic deemed Oscar's tips. "Play Like the Pros", too controversial, denying those break-through technical advances to the USA. Even Tennis Magazine criticized Oscar's first book as too simplistic in a 1990 editorial and never mentioned Oscar again, favoring their old advisors, also keeping the USA in the dark!

About Oscar:

Oscar Wegner, a former engineering student in the 1950s and an international tour player in the 1960s, was light-years ahead of the tennis industry when he was coaching open stance, stalking the ball in front, hitting up and across, lifting the body, heavy topspin and more, at Spain’s Tennis Federation School in Barcelona in 1973 and in Florianopolis, Brazil in the 1980’s.

Oscar published his first book, “Tennis In Two Hours” in 1989, based on proven facts, which immediately became popular with coaches in Eastern Europe, from Moscow to Belgrade.  His innovative teachings received further exposure for four years on The New Tennis Magazine TV Show in the early 1990’s, leading Richard Williams to test these tenets with his daughters, future world champions Venus and Serena.  Meanwhile, Brazilian Gustavo Kuerten, whom Oscar had started with these techniques as a five-year-old, went on to become world champion in the year 2000 and three-time French Open winner.

From 1997 through 1999 ESPN International promoted Oscar’s 40 revolutionary “Play Like The Pros” tips in English and Spanish to their entire overseas network of over 150 countries at the tune of over 10 billion impressions, leading to more successes around the world.  Furthermore, Oscar’s far- reaching technical commentary on ESPN Latin America for six years charted a new course for tennis in that continent. 

Continuing into the 21st Century his effort to spread his message to coaches and players around the globe, Oscar has produced the “Tennis Into The Future” series of instructional DVDs, which reflect not only the best techniques of today’s top professionals, but suggests also the direction that tennis instruction should advance towards in the coming decades.

Oscar played on the international tennis circuit from 1963-67, competing with tennis legends such as Emerson, Stolle, Roche, Newcombe, Drysdale and Mulligan, to name a few.  He also practiced with a resurgent Pancho Gonzales for one year and worked under former world champion Pancho Segura at the Beverly Hills Tennis Club in the late 1960’s.  His interest in tennis from an early age in his native Argentina together with a background in engineering and his keen observation while competing among the greatest names in tennis prepared him to formulate a method of teaching tennis that had never before been utilized.  Revolutionary when it first appeared on the international tennis scene, it remains to this day an evolutionary method, making tennis easy to coach at every level of the game.

TESTIMONIALS

"Oscar is a great coach. In a few days he helped me regain my strokes and my feel for the ball." Bjorn Borg, 5 Wimbledons Champion and 6 French Opens, in his 1992 comeback, after stopping competing for 10 years.

"Known and respected all around the world, Oscar has given us another great contribution with this book." Guga Kuerten, Three French Opens, Number One in the World in 2000. Oscar coached Guga Kuerten from the age of five to the end of his 14th year.

"I used to watch Venus and Serena practice at the Macci Academy (early 1990s). Richard Williams seemed to always be there. The Williams sisters were standing open and they were really slugging the ball like today's modern tennis players. They hit with so much power and spin. My impression was that the Williams sisters had their own way of playing and they were not going to change their techniques to Macci's strokes. Now, since Oscar has taught me modern tennis, I realize that the Williams sisters were playing pro style modern tennis exactly the way Oscar Wegner taught back then, and he continues to do so." Dr. Larry Buhrman.

"Wegner strips tennis instruction of all those accepted phrases and directions that only clutter your mind and confuse.....I think you'll find it worthwhile to dump the past and join Oscar in your tennis future. In listening to him I've unlearned a few things myself that I long considered gospel....." Bud Collins, Boston Globe, NBC.

"Oscar Wegner is a true pioneer in the game of tennis. I have a deep respect for Oscar's teaching and his passion to help others. My time on court with him during my professional tennis career was very valuable and many of the concepts he shared with me helped me understand my own game better. His knowledge of how the body actually works and the natural way tennis is played has helped shape my own coaching philosophies. Thanks for moving tennis forward, Oscar." Jeff Salzenstein, former Top 100 ATP Player.

"Oscar: ... I have long acknowledged that your tennis teaching methods are light years ahead of those for most teaching professionals in our industry. I also happen to believe that our industry has complicated the learning process for so many players that they become discouraged and leave our sport too quickly. Your ideas simplify matters, and this is crucial." Bill Mountford, National Tennis Center, US Open site.

"Oscar has broken the mold in understanding the modern tennis stroke. In working with him and watching super slo-motion sequences of the top pros, I have seen the genius of Oscar's analysis of their dynamics and technique. He has translated that into effective teaching methodology that is easy and fun to learn from." Andy Rosenberg, Director, Wimbledon and French Open for NBC Sports.

"I recommend this method to other professionals. With this method we had positive results all over the world." Carlos Alves. Carlos took Oscar to Brazil, learned his methods, and together they developed Guga Kuerten until he was 14 in 2001 (Guga was #1 in 2000, beating Pete Sampras and Andre Agassi), and also coached many other top juniors and pros, including Carlos' daughter Nanda Alves, #1 in Brazil.

"This book (Tennis in Two Hours) describes to a "T" what I felt when I was at the top of my game. It is amazing that Oscar makes it so simple to learn."
Martin Mulligan, Wimbledon finalist to Rod Laver in 1962 and three-time Italian Open winner.

"This system is amazing, like planting 250 seeds and getting 250 trees. All of the children I teach at the summer camp keep coming back every year, all of them. They learn quickly and they love the sport."
Bob Ruzanic, a Pennsylvania tennis coach and former Chairman of the U.S. Davis Cup Committee.

"Oscar's techniques are incredible. Back in 1982 he was with me (coaching) in Germany and the students called him "the American who taught tennis in two hours". Over and over, he had total beginners rallying 40, 60 balls back and forth in just two hours of instruction. He also helped the Weiden Tennis Club have an undefeated junior tennis team that year and get our main team to the Bundesliga."
Jurgen Fassbender, former #1 player in Germany and Top Ten player in the world.

"After introducing top juniors to the Wegner Method, I went from unknown coach with zero tournament students to head pro at Dwight Davis, largest public facility in St. Louis, Missouri, and home to the St. Louis Aces (Andy Roddick). IN NINE MONTHS! I just smile when coaches try to say your method is just for starters and intermediates, for I have used it with 5.0s and nationally ranked juniors, all amazed at how advanced but still simple to Play Like the Pros really is. Now even coaches take tennis lessons from me, but it's not me, it's your method they want."
John Carpenter, former Head Pro, Dwight Davis Tennis Center, St. Louis, Missouri.

"When my children were very young and just starting to play tennis, Oscar gave them drills that were fun to do. He generated an interest and eagerness for the game so that they wanted to play more, and as a result, they became motivated to play better. Oscar's relaxed style of teaching conveys a sense of comfort and confidence to his students so that they look forward to working with him and can enjoy the consistent improvements that result from his teachings."
Vincent Spadea Sr, father of former #4 American and 19th ranked in the world.

"Your teaching method is logical, easily understood, and works. Now I understand why Spain has so many players."
Jana Hunsacker, former Director of Tennis, U.S.T.A. National Tennis Center, Flushing Meadows, N.Y., the site of the U.S. Open Championships.

"About 6 weeks ago I bought your complete package. Fantastic. I had been teaching along your lines for some time. To see it all so perfectly laid out and confirmed has made such a difference to my coaching and to my pupils. I cannot thank you enough. I have been coaching for 10 years and have completed many many coach education courses, some very good but nothing has helped me as much as your method. I coach at all levels, but focus mostly on junior performance players. I find your method helps at every single level.
Many thanks, Alex."

"My team has won three NCAA titles and I have been named NCAA "Coach of the Year" twice. I say this only as a reference point. I was very fascinated with your work and have thought a lot about it since. I plan to use your methodology in my classes. In my pursuit of coaching excellence I was with you on many concepts and yet found many of the things you emphasized quite eye opening."
Bob Hansen, Univ. of California Santa Cruz.

"I've been a teaching pro for about 13 years. During that time I've come across many theories (some great and some not so great). I would usually test them in a lesson. If they work, I keep using them. Well, I've keept a lot of theories and material from your book and using them daily with my lessons, with great results!"
Scott Gilmore, Fort Walton Beach, Florida.

"Your method of simplifying the strokes and teaching beginners to "play like the pros" has benefitted hundreds of New York City school children and the teachers that train them. It's remarkable to see children rallying back and forth 20-70 times within an hour and I love hearing from them that "tennis is easy."
Sheri Slobin, Deputy Director of Programs for the NY Jr. Tennis League.
