Here's what others have had to say about Adriana Korn Tennis Academy:
"I took private lessons with Adriana on a weekly basis. She is a skilled instructor and recognized the areas of my game that needed improvement. She offered to drive me to the courts in her car and took the time to show me around on our way to tennis practice. She also invited me to join tennis lessons with one of her students. Hopefully, I will come ba. Thank you for everything!" Francoise (Canada), November 2016
"Thank you for being so sweet and making time to pick me up, arrange a court and invite me to play with the other practice session. I had a very good time and could have a very good memory of my brief time in Buenos Aries. My thanks also to Patricio and Fausto, too.", David (China), September 2016
"En este grupo encontré lo que estaba buscando en mi estadía en Buenos Aires. Quería encontrar un grupo en el cual existan buenas relaciones de amistad pero también al mismo tiempo se tomen el entrenamiento seriamente. Me divertí mucho y extraño a Adriana y los demás", Caroline (US), July 2016
"I had the great fortune of meeting Adriana just a couple short days after my arrival in Buenos Aires. From then on, I played in almost every Friday night clinic during my three month stay. As a coach, Adriana brings unique attributes to the court - for one, her accomplished experience as a Fed Cup captain and tennis professional, but also, perhaps less known, an understanding of the importance of mental strength and control in the game. She is constantly introducing new concepts into the clinics, and she recruits the help of other professionals, such as physical trainers, kinesiologists, and psychologists to enhance the learning experience. Her coaching philosophy is based on understanding the game through the individual student's perspective and then working from there to make adept changes to one's game. If you have the opportunity to take a lesson with Adriana or to play in one of her clinics, take it! Whether you are a traveler looking to hit for an hour or a local hoping to develop a steady training regimen, she will improve your game and become a great friend in the process." - Shannon (USA), July 2016
"Thanks for the great lessons. See you in August!" Matthew, Sarah and Ali (US and Canada), from American International Lincoln School of Buenos Aires, May 2016
"Hi Adriana, It was very nice to train with you, thank you and hopefully see you next time! Greetings" Heidi and Eide (Netherlands), April 2016
"On a short notice we decided to get some tennis lessons in BA. We contacted Adriana and she helped us organize everything: Getting to the courts, change location and reservation because of bad weather, recommendations about the city and much more... The Tennis lessons with adriana were great. We got a lot of great technical inputs and it was always great fun. Adriana brought us even rackets, because we did not have our equipment with us! Thanks for the great time. We (hopefully) will be back sometime..." - Mirjam and Hannes (Switzerland), April 2016
"Hi Adriana, Thanks again for all the thoughtful coaching and hospitality. I had a great time and learned a lot. Love the pictures. I have played already and play again today. I actually won some points with my backhand - there is a God!! Hope to see you again. All the best." - Clive (London, UK), January 2016
"Hello Adriana, Thank you again so much for teaching us last week. We had a great time playing and it was so nice to be able to play while on vacation. It was a great experience to learn from you and appreciate all your extra help with showing us the city and taking us to and from practice. Hopefully we can meet again in the future. Thank you!" - Jason (Seattle, USA), January 2016
"Hola Adriana! I want to thank you for the opportunity you gave me. I enjoyed it a lot. And thanks for bringing me home every time. I really enjoyed the practise, everyone was so nice to me. And if I know someone who comes to Argentina and wants to play tennis, I will certainly recommend you. Thanks for everything!" - Natasja (Amsterdam, Netherlands), December 2015
