Welcome to Season 9, Episode 8, of the ParentingAces Podcast! You are in for a treat this week as we chat with the Dent family: Phil, Taylor, and Jenny!
Taylor Dent, formerly ranked #21 on the ATP Tour, is a past guest on our podcast. He has coached several top players since retiring from professional tennis, and is now running a very successful program in Texas alongside his father and wife.
In this week's episode, all 3 Dents share their coaching philosophy in terms of both on-court and off-court work, and their commitment to producing not only great tennis players but also great humans.
I first met Taylor at the US Open several years ago when he was working with Jared Donaldson. I couldn't help but be impressed with his no-nonsense approach to sport and his humility when talking about his own accomplishments.
A few months ago, the director of The Birch Racquet and Lawn Club reached out to me asking if I'd like to interview Taylor, Phil, and Jenny. Of course, I said YES!
In case you aren't familiar with this very impressive family, here are some facts taken from their academy website:
