Oscar Wegner is one of the most known tennis coaches in the world. After playing internationally in the 1960s, Oscar undertook a coaching career and developed a remarkable methodology that makes tennis an easy sport to learn. Tennis, Oscar says, is far simpler than it looks.
Oscar's coaching concepts have had tremendous impact globally, earning him, from Brad Holbrook, host/producer of the Tennis Television Show in the USA, the designation of "the father of modern tennis". Oscar Wegner's breakthrough techniques, which he initially taught in the National Tennis School in Spain, then in Florianopolis, Brazil, where Oscar coached a group of young players that included "Guga" Kuerten until he was 14, later on TV in the USA, and finally broadcast worldwide through ESPN International, have produced top players in the USA and in countries as far as Russia, Thailand, South America, Spain, and the Far East. Among those are the famous Williams sisters, whose father Richard learned from Oscar's televised lessons the techniques that put them on short notice on top of the tennis world, and Paradorn Srichaphan, whose father coached him aided by Oscar's videos.
After a wonderfully productive decade on television, first with the Tennis Television Show on the USA's Prime Network (now Fox Sports), and then on ESPN International and the Pan American Sports Network as a tennis commentator for their Latin Americam shows, including Wimbledon, the French Open and the Australian Open, Oscar switched career gears and decided to tackle changing the coaching of the game at its grass roots level. He is presently based in Clearwater, Florida, working on a massive campaign to reform the American conventional tennis teaching system and to take tennis and its popularity in the USA to a brand new level.
