Tennis Consulting
David O’Meara’s tennis coaching career began right after he finished playing #1 position at Bowdoin College and a short stint playing in Europe. Just turning 24 years old, he began his coaching career in India at the Britannia Amritraj Tennis team (BAT) in 1986. He lived in Chennai, India for the next five years developing India’s young men into a future Davis Cup Team to represent India on the international level. O’Meara succeeded with creating a new, competitive Davis Cup Team and developing World #1 junior Leander Paes who went on to win a bronze medal at the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta in singles and 13 Grand Slam Doubles titles.

O’Meara coached other professional tennis players from different parts of the world: Tamarine Tanasugarn (Thailand) reached a career high #19 on the WTA tour in 2002, Nirupama Vaidyanathan went on to become the first Indian female to win a Grand Slam match, Jocelyn Robichaud and Marie-Eve Pelletier (Canada) both represented their country internationally and Winston Lin (USA) is currently playing #1 singles for Columbia University.

Now at his home in Sarasota, Florida, O’Meara develops competitive juniors and adults on a private basis. O’Meara has clients from all over the world travel to Sarasota for his personalized training and consulting with players, parents and personal coaches. O’Meara’s intensity for how tennis has evolved into the game it is today creates an enthusiasm that his students have come to admire. O’Meara’s unique coaching style is captured in his books, Unlimited Tennis in 1997 and Play Better, Live Better in 2003.
