Mauro is native of Brazil, born in a tennis family, plays since he was 5 yrs old. He was a ranked Junior, played Sanctioned Sao Paulo State & Nationals Tournaments from 1974 till 1979, and also inter-clubs leagues and inter-cities games.

After winning several titles as a Junior, Mauro went on to play College Tennis at the University of Sao Paulo, and got his Bachelors degree in Physical Education in 1983. During the 4 college years, Mauro also taught part-time doing the Brazilian tennis-night-shift, from 6>10pm, at various clubs and academies in Sao Paulo City, and started having teaching experiences even before graduating.

Afterwords, Mauro continued teaching in Sao Paulo City still, at a prestigious Club for 2 years, then, at the Best Academy there was, when he realized he wanted to learn more!!

He then moved to the USA in 1987, and started at Rick Macci’s Academy, where at the time young Jennifer Capriati was one of the full-time in-living Juniors.

Following, Mauro did a couple summer camps at Carlos Goffi’s Tournment Tough Camp,“Strictly for Ranked Players”, in which he was the Head Professional and Camp Coordinator.

From 1987 till 2005, Mauro has held the positions of Jr.Director, Head Pro and Tennis Director up and down the US East Coast, from Miami & Tampa up to Boston & Cape Cod, then down to South Carolina Beach, then NYCity & The Hamptons.

After many different special experiences gathered, the time came for him then to follow an old dream of living in California, so he then moved cross-country to San Francisco Bay in 2005, to help an old close friend Tennis Director to install a Jr.program and also contribute to the existing adult program at his club.

Mauro then in 2009 got invited to join an instructional tennis site, and has since been working on it full-time, at first re-editing all done before him, and now it’s his turn to share his 30+ years of teaching and coaching experience with the whole world.

His new tennis venture: “to share his knowledge and methods, and try to help the tennis games of all tennis people within reach, through the internet, and help them perform better than they thought they could”!!

Mauro is a Certified PTR Pro Professional Level, with 45+ years of playing and 30+ years of teaching.
