    We have already visited FERRERO and MOURATOGLOU.

    Has anyone heard of the above?

    The only acceptable loss is when your opponent was better than you on that given day.
    It is never acceptable to lose when your opponent was not.

    We have a Member that can provide much more detail about D. Lloyd's Academy than I would be able to. I don't remember the Member's name off the top of my head but will look it up and see if I can put you together so he can give you more details.

    if i'm right, david lloyd teaches tennis using oscar wegner's MTM. and the fact is all his instructors are MTM certified. you should ask oscar about this.

    Oscar is great name from tennis world and deserves great respect. However David Lloyd Couches do not have MTM certificates.

    First letter of complaint to mouratoglou tennis academy

    Fabien please. I have told you before, you are not talking to x's mum or to
    the guy from Guatheloupe. You told me (and ive got it written down in an email) that my kids
    will train with world class players and we come there to see someone from Guatheloupe and a girl from
    New Zealand that can hardly hit 2 backhands in a row...
    Most of the things that are mentioned in your website are simply lies. You show this Baghdatis video at the start
    and you think I am going to fall for it... Your purpose (not personally yours, but the people who you are reporting to) is one.
    To make as much money as possible out of children with rich parents promising them things about rising players and all these rubbish so that you can support all the players that are living on site and Patrick believes they are good enough.. so that they
    can train and live there for free at the expense of all the other ones that they are living their dream about
    being Like Baghdatis.. Who these ones are going to be, Patrick has already decided...
    All the rest that are coming there, are paying for the ones that Patrick has decided.
    And as i have told you before, I dont have a problem with this... But you can not tell me (and Vincent especially)
    that my daughter has got potential and then offering me 100 Euros off from her next training camp.
    This is not even the taxi to the airport one way...Your bosses are after quick money to support the proper training
    of your rising players..You are after quick profit and I find your whole approach totally unethical..
    I had spent 5 months arranging this trip, and I did explain to you from the very start in every detail my problem.

    Mouratoglou tennis academy

    My son's report had someone elses name at the end of it!!!!!
    They obviously have template reports and they just change the names...
    In my case they forgot to change it to my son's name in the last page!!
    So much about personalised training!!!!

    Final letter of complaint to Mouratoglou Tennis academy

    You use the internet to make a brilliant marketing out of an extremely bad product.
    I will use the internet to make sure that as many people on the planet as possible are aware of my experience.
    I will simply state the facts and they can make up their own mind...

    I am not saying that your place is bad. I am saying it s bad for the money you are charging people.
    As I told you we get this in our tennis club for 250 euros a week not 1,800..
    And i totally believed that you wanted to help..Why would you? How do you know me?
    But I have now to make sure that honest and realistic tennis parents (with limited tennis budgets) do not fall into the same trap
    as i did....
    I would not bring my kids back to your place even if it was for free for ever...
    In fact I have found the correct place for my kids. A place that they could offer them whatever they could without exaggerations or lies.
    In my previous email i had asked you to return to me half of the money that I spent in your place (which i think is more than fair)
    and i will try and forget about my bad experience at your place.
    But I am not bothered now. You can keep all the money ...
    But I ll promise you one thing.
    Every court Im next to when my kids are playing either in Britain or abroad , I will make sure that I share
    my experience about your place with as many tennis people as i possibly can.
