"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.
