“By nature, I want to teach, I want to help people,” says Jimmy Arias about the moment he decided to be a high-performance coach and pass on his knowledge to new generations.
A new episode of “The Tennis Talk – Coaches Voices” season 1 #14 is out, and this week we had the privilege of speaking with renowned coach Jimmy Arias. The Roland Garros champion in 1981 in mixed doubles has established himself as an international tennis leader, who shares great concepts both as a mentor at IMG Academy, as well as in his facet as a television analyst.
On this occasion, Jimmy spoke with Fernando Segal, CEO of the Segal Institute, about some of the differences that he observes between current tennis and the one he experienced in his time as a player in the 20th century. “People today work on their game, but they lack a couple of things that they had in my generation: recognize our opponents and our weaknesses,” he comments during part of the talk that lasted more than an hour.
