June 28, 2010
SCOTTSDALE, AZ — Hyatt Regency Scottsdale Resort and Spa at Gainey Ranch is proud to announce that its tennis partner, iTUSA, International Tennis USA, headquartered at the resort, has just signed an agreement with the Royal Spanish Tennis Federation and its regional affiliates to support their players and coaches with iTUSA’s advanced instructional and video technology, a player development system and approach.
Developed by Rafael “Rafa” Font de Mora, former Spanish professional tennis player, established coach on the WTA tour and iTUSA founder, Executive Director and Conductor of the Tennis Academy at Hyatt Regency Scottsdale Resort and Spa, it will now be used to assist all Spanish tennis players, including many of the top ranked men’s players, Davis Cup and Fed Cup teams to improve their game and rankings.
Spain entered into this agreement because they want to continue their domination of men’s professional tennis.
The first Spanish Federation regional affiliate to begin implementing the agreement will be Valencia, the home turf of David Ferrer (#11) and Juan Carlos Ferrero (#17). Over the years, Valencia has been recognized for their incredible player development program, where players like Marat Safin and Dinara Safina have each developed their games to become number one in the world.
Font de Mora has coached Anna-Lena Gronefeld, and is still coaching Meghann Shaughnessy. In addition to training professional tennis players and young aspiring talent, iTUSA manages the resort’s tennis facility, providing the same instructional and video technology to those recreational players who want to improve their game. Two, Three, and Six-Day instructional Tennis Academy packages are available at the resort. For reservations and more information, visit scottsdale.hyatt.com or call 800-233-1234.
