Dimitar Yazadzhiev working with Grigor Dimitrov

Congratulations Anna Tatishvili participance at Rollad Garros 2016.

I (Dimitar) am PERSONALLY on court, coaching daily to players of all levels at all ages! Over the past 25 years, I have been very fortunate to coach and mold some of the best junior and professional players in the world. Coaching is an art and that is why I believe that a smaller, more personalized program with an emphasis on each player is how to truly develop tennis players. You have my personal commitment that here at the Dimitar Tennis Academy we will do our best to help you develop as a person, athlete and player as I have done over the years with Grigor Dimitrov, Anna Tatisvili, Sesil Karatancheva, Ksenia Milevskaya and Aleksandrina Naydenova to name a few. I look forward to personally working with you very soon at our Academy located at the beautiful Hilton Beachfront Resort in Santa Barbara, California.
