Our Hopman Heritage

The Tampa Tennis Academy was acquired from the legendary Harry Hopman in 1986 and became the foundation of the Saddlebrook tennis program. The same philosophy and focus on fitness that made Hopman one of the most successful tennis coaches in history still drives our daily clinics. Top ATP and WTA players have trained at Saddlebrook, including Jim Courier, Pete Sampras, Martina Hingis, Andy Roddick, Alex Zverev and John Isner.
