All wrapped up
This Christmas and winter break we want to wish all the junior athletes the best of luck in their tennis, in their education, and in their life. Remind them that they are all unique and important and to take life as a journey where they get to learn many different things that will help them become the best version of themselves. Our doors will always be open to growing together as student-athletes.
It all starts with them
It all starts with them, at such a young age the families of our student-athletes decide to join the academy. The time of their stay at the Emilio Sanchez Academy goes by so fast, and for a young athlete is not easy. This blog is different than the rest, this blog is about us, our […]

Daniel Caverzaschi, a role model
Daniel Caverzaschi was born on July 11, 1993, with a malformation in his right leg. He is a role model. A national and world reference in the world of tennis. His ability has allowed him to achieve personal and sports success.
In the Emilio Sanchez Academy, we are fortunate to have him as a part of our academy, a part of our identity, a player who is next to us. We are lucky to see him improve every day, and we consider him an example for young people to follow. On Wednesday, June 15th we had the opportunity to listen to him, he talked in front of families and ES students who were graduating from the senior class of 2022. Daniel told us his story, making it a story full of motivation and overcoming daily challenges.
Fernanda begins to write her story
What is success? Winning? Qualifying for Roland Garros and Wimbledon? Or get to write inspiring stories that reach people through tennis? For me, Fernanda does this last thing. Fernanda Contreras is a story of tennis, which motivates, and that, above all, marks the difference between the common; She is special, her way of listening, looking, speaking, playing, and her way of surrendering does not leave unnoticed anyone and, when she is on the court she becomes someone else.
Nadal the last of the mohicans
There are no words to describe Rafa’s feat. It’s my 14th article talking about him in Paris, and I’m running out of adjectives. After explaining the keys to his technical evolution, I now prefer to highlight the key reading and adaptation attributes of his transformation.
In recent years, Rafa has made a constant evolution of his game. He was already an excellent player on the defense side. From an early age, he managed to enter the counter-attack zone and even be offensive with his forehand, but always with the premise that, once he had control of the court, he had to maintain that position and dominate without giving breath to the opponent always with the idea of not failing or even defending, again and again, or whatever it took
Look Mom! I Made It!
Graduation is quite the show at Emilio Sanchez American School. Joy. Tears. Dancing. And of course, the wonderful food! Soon our Senior Class of 2022 will be walking onto the stage receiving their diplomas and off of the stage into their bright futures. Furthermore, it is a celebration of their great efforts and growth throughout their journey as students, athletes, and humans. When the audience is seated and the air is full of anticipation of a magical evening, our academic principal Dr. Pamela Brisson and the director of the academy Emilio Sanchez start the proceedings with their kind words. Then it is time for the stars of the evening. Starting with the Salutatorian (second highest high school GPA among the seniors) followed by the remainder of the seniors and finally, the Valedictorian (highest high school GPA of the graduating class), each one of the seniors recites their heartfelt speeches. Their gratitude and love for their “home away from home” is evident in every word. At least a tear is almost certainly shed… To reap the fruits of their labors, each senior is awarded their diploma and a ceremonial moving of the tassels on their caps takes place to formally mark the start of a new chapter in their lives.
LIFE IS A COMEBACK

Alcaraz, four into one
Federer’s technique, Murray’s tactics, Djokovic’s physique, Nadal’s mind: the Spanish talent seems a synthesis of the Fab Four, and he can still improve a lot.
