Reviews & Testimonials
“Just wanted to take the time to update you briefly. Our CD’s arrived on Thursday, literally about 20 minutes prior to our departure for the tournament my son was playing in. We listened to them several times (10 hr. drive). I was so delighted that they arrived as I wanted them specifically for him to listen to BEFORE this tournament.
Already the CD’s have made a difference! He controlled his emotions better than at any tournament before. (He is an excellent tennis player physically and technically, but his weakness has been emotional, which then causes his game to suffer.) So, he was able himself to notice a great difference and is very encouraged! We told him that this is just the beginning of many improvements he is going to see as a result of being able to “control” his emotions & thoughts & focus better.
THANK YOU for assuring that we received our order! ~ Sincerely, Eric Mathis"
“It was heart breaking for me as a mother to see my son getting angry on the court and losing matches he should easily wins. His coach used to talk to him before his matches BUT once the game started my son seemed to lose his concentration and end up playing with out any fun or motivation.
Now since he’s been listening to your CD’s before his matches, he steps on the court not only feeling positive and ready to play but also willing to do what it takes to win.”
~ Selvia Bergmann, Austria
"My son (8) has listened to the cds 5 nights in a row now, a mixture of the “start cd”, the “anger cd” and the “first serve”. He falls to sleep before the end of it every time. I hope this is ok??
HOWEVER, I don’t know if this is coincidence or not, but we have noticed a change in his attitude just being around the home. He seems a lot calmer and just seems to listen to us a bit more. Could it be working already? And would it be working for him off court as well?? It has been a very noticeable change, and his dad and I are wondering if it is due to the cds??
It is going to be very interesting to see what he is like once he gets back on court. We are very happy that it appears that change is already taking place, and so soon.
Please just let me know if we are doing the right thing by letting him fall to sleep? Thank you again Hassan, I am starting to see hope for our little boy."
"I ordered your series of CD’s back in Octo.. for my 9yr old daughter Melanie Lewis. While driving back to Michigan from our Christmas vacation in south Florida we stopped for lunch in Bradenton.
On impulse we elected to tour Bollettieri Tennis Academy. Not only did we get a tour but a half hour private video tapped lesson with Nick Bollettieri!!! Melanie did very well and stayed calm and focused even though we were all nervous. Her ability to concentrate is a direct result of us listening to your CD’s at night before bed."
~ Thank-you from the Lewis family
“My daughter (10) brings all your CD’s along in her tennis bag. On the way to a tournament, she often chooses one cd and she will sit in the back of the car and sometimes listen to the same CD 3 or 4 times. She is playing much better and she is WINNING. Her coach is very impressed with her performance. Thank you so much.”

"Since my brother (6yrs.) and I (9yrs) listen to your CD's every night, we play much better tennis. I reached the final round of the last 16 Boys 12 Singles at the 2002 Eddie Herr International and my brother won the Boys 10 tournament at the Nick Bollettieri tennis academy in Florida."
~ Sergio Geminiani
"Your CD's make me feel stronger. I hit the ball better and with more control now. I have been in 4 finals, won my first professional tournament and my ranking is shooting up (from 240 to 160 in 4 months). I'm very exited about my tennis."
~ Catalina, WTA TOUR
"I have been playing tennis for 10 years. I am 15 years old now and I've slumped to the worst ranking and form EVER. I am losing to players who, a couple of years ago, I would have easily beat. Now they are beating me. I lose in the first and second rounds of every tournament, when not to long ago I was winning almost every tournament. I feel that I have no confidence at all and that my attitude has changed dramatically. I cannot explain what has happened to my tennis with words.
I came across your site and my dad ordered all your CD's and I started listening every single day. I always believed that hard training, sweat and tears would make me a winner. Now I realize that there is so much more to preparation for my best tennis performance, and that I have the potential to achieve so much more. Your D0 IT YOURSELF program for peak performance gives me the tools to achieve my optimum performance in every situation on the tennis court. OH! I can't possibly describe how happy I am. It feels sooooo good to start winning again."

"In my opinion the most advanced, most effective and most complete program ever developed for tennis."
~ Phil Whitesell, men's head coach at the College of Charleston, SC. Winner of 3 NCAA championships, worked with Brenda-McCarthy (top ten player of the world and also coached Meredith McGrath, semi-finals at Wimbledon.
"Outstanding. It's so much more effective than all the books and videos out there. The CD's are short and to the point. I carry the CD's in my tennis bag and listen to the one I need when I need it. I listen to CD #21 when I have problems with my 1st serve. I listen to #8 when I have problems with closing out my matches. I listen to #1 to motivate and energize myself before my matches. It's like magic. I don't get angry or nervous any more. Every time I listen to the tapes I hit the ball harder, move faster and I concentrate on playing the big points and the key games with more confidence and determination. The funny thing is: Since I stopped thinking about winning, Winning just becomes easy and fun."
~ Salvador E. (21), Mexico
"After meeting you at the German Open a year ago I ordered some of your CD's and I'm happy to tell that your mental toughness program is really excellent idea. As you know I was myself a good junior player. I went to Bollettieri for 9 month and played the satellite and futures tour. Now I'm coaching about 6 talented juniors. I have read many books and attend many workshops about mental toughness and I believe listening to a cd shortly before the match is more effective than reading books or watching videos."
~ Maximilian Mayer, Frankfurt
"Since my daughter (11) started using the Mental Toughness CD's, she is more excited about her tennis. Four months ago, she would get angry when she was not playing well and would hit balls with no sense of fun. Now, I let her listen to your CD's on the way to the tennis courts. When we arrive she is already mentally warmed up and ready to play with greater determination and winning desire -- even when she is just playing for fun."
~ King and daughter Simone
"I always listen to my favorite CD's before the match. I feel confident to take control of the ball and play an awesome game from the beginning to the end. I feel no pressure and I never get nervous or angry anymore. I almost forgot to tell you that I won the BOLLETTIERI Jr. CHAMPIONSHIP"
~ Lorenzo Di Stefano 11 years old, Venezuela
"I have had great success in using your program to prepare my players mentally for their matches. This has lead my players to develop the mental skill required to keep their eyes on the ball, their mind on the game and focus on the process, not the outcome."
~ Eduardo M., Argentina
"I have learned to recognize and take control of the negative emotions that kept me from playing my best tennis. I'm no longer losing the "easy" matches that I should be winning."
~ Karin S. League player
"I was always nervous before games. Since I started listening to your CD's before my matches it's much easier for me to stay relaxed and just focus on the moment. I won the national championship in Portugal, qualified in Egypt and reached the semifinals in Brazil."
~ Helga (18)
"Hi Mr. Refay, I would like to tell you how well your CD's are working on the "inner mind" of my son Anthony who is just 8 years old. As I told you before, he falls asleep with "you" every night. You are his bedtime story and the soothing voice is doing wonders. I deeply believe that ingraining the mental strengths NOW when he is young and still OPEN minded will benefit him more than when he is in his teens and loaded with all kinds of perceived feelings and knowledge - right or wrong. By the teen years he will know every word inside out like mantras and the information will be there when he needs it."
~ Thanks, Anthony's Mom
"Your CD's make me feel absolutely confident. I can keep my eyes fixed on the ball, my timing is better, and I hit the ball with more power and control than ever before."
~ Mike Peterson (14)
