find it worthwhile to dump the past and join Oscar in your

myself that I long considered gospel....." Bud Collins,
Boston Globe, NBC
We have not met, but I have long acknowledged that your 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

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 city 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 lessons
from me, but it's not me, it's your method they want."
John Carpenter, Head Pro, Dwight Davis Tennis Center,
St. Louis, Missouri
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

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,

your stuff 10 years ago! I hit some balls with a buddy of

how simple tennis truly can be. I look forward to incorporating
your techniques in my teaching." Robert

the many tips I absorbed was the second serve, where you toss
the ball and then "push" or accelerate through the
