Skillful Professional Athlete resume

Sebastien Leitz

For the past 8 years, I have been developing tennis players to reach their highest potential in this great sport of tennis. I have spent time in all levels of tennis including coaching several players on the Pro Tour. (Working with a player that rose from #133 in the world to #75 in 6 short months).

With Patrick Mouratoglou as my former coach and Jim Moortgat as my mentor over the past few years, I was able to grow my skills as a player first and then as a coach.

Former NCAA D1 student athlete, I have recently been focusing on the “neck up“ approach for athletes with Emotional Intelligence and Artificially Intelligence.

I have now a better knowledge of the relationship coach/player as well as how to develop the right state of mind to become to best version of yourself on and off the court.
