About Anthony

Anthony is a coach and sport psychologist based in Brisbane, Australia. He frequently travels on the ATP and WTA tours and has worked with players during competition against Nadal, Federer and Djokovic. He currently coaches Jack Jaede, one of Australia's most promising 16 year-old male players, and consults to a leading Australian junior tennis academy and high school program (as sport psychologist). From 2007-2009 Anthony was sport psychologist in an Australian junior development program (children aged 12-15 years) that produced a Junior World #1, a Wimbledon junior singles champion and a Wimbledon junior singles finalist.

Additionally, Anthony's sport psychology Masters degree included completing the most extensive empirical exploration regarding the understanding and development of tennis mental toughness ever undertaken. This involved spending time with several Grand Slam Champions, coaches of World #1 players, parents of these players, as well as players who were perceived to have underachieved in their careers due to a lack of mental toughness. He is currently completing his PhD at the University of Queensland studying the link between parental communications and player mental toughness in collaboration with Tennis Australia.

Anthony was formerly an All-American Pepperdine University player and his combined singles/doubles winning percentage of 85% (122-21) under coach Peter Smith is the second best of Peter's coaching career, behind only Steve Johnson. Anthony went on to compete as a professional doubles player at tournaments including Wimbledon.

In combination, his practical and scientific experience as a player, coach, researcher and psychologist have allowed him to develop a deep understanding of the psychology of competing in tennis. This knowledge has helped him develop the ability to teach highly complex matters in easy to understand, practical ways, which has evolved into the 4A Cycle approach!
