Francisco and Silicon Valley Tennis Academy have done an amazing job in developing Nathan and Jody to highly ranked NorCal and national players. We believe the positive results are due to Francisco's love and pride of the tennis sport, as well as his caring for young people. His good work isn't just what we could see at the tennis court. He always learns new ideas from other tennis professional occasions, and he thinks hard to improve all his individual students. Without his dedication, my children will not be loving tennis as much as they do now. In additions, under his guidance, Nathan and Jody have not only built up solid tennis foundation, they have also learned to be a better person in life. We have always been very happy with the training program designed by Francisco. We highly recommend Silicon Valley Tennis Academy.

We met Francisco 6 years ago when he took our older son, Spencer, to a trip to Mexico as part of the USTA Norcal diversity program. Spencer had a wonderful experience playing on clay in another country but most of all he was exposed to another culture because Francisco took the time to show them around Mexico City.
After this trip, Spencer and Sean started to work out with Francisco. We are so grateful for the years that both our sons have spent with him at Silicon Valley Tennis Academy. Not only has he helped them improve their tennis skills but he has also helped in molding them into nice, respectful young gentlemen. Francisco is not one to flatter you and give you false expectations about your game; he looks at both your strengths and weaknesses and works on them to get you better. The most important thing they have learned is that discipline and hard work are necessary to improve one's game. There are no easy short cuts in life and I am happy my sons are being taught this not just by Francisco but also by the other coaches that work at the Academy.
We are proud to say that Spencer was one of the top junior players in Norcal in both singles and doubles. Spencer was recruited by several colleges at end of his junior year and is currently playing tennis at the University of Notre Dame in Indiana. Now a sophomore, he has just been ranked in the "Men's National Doubles Rankings, Division I, NCAA Tennis."
Sean is currently ranked in the top 10 in singles and top 5 in doubles in Norcal B16's. We look forward to the next few years of watching Sean grow into the best tennis player he can be under Francisco's guidance and training program.
Francisco is generous with his time and deeply cares about the success of each of his students both on and off the court. He has been an incredible mentor to our boys and we are truly blessed to have met him 6 years ago!
