“Patricia has helped me so much, I work with her 1 on 1 and attend her workshops. I’ve learned so many tools and strategies that I’ve implemented on the court and have helped me under pressure. I’ve also learned more about myself and how I handle different situations. I definitely think her experience and expertise is super helpful and she definitely has made a major difference in my mental stregth journey already.”
“Working with me Patricia taught me a lot of new things about my tennis games. I started working with her during my college recruiting process, and she helped me get in contact with amazing coaches and schools. She guided me through the whole process and helped make everything easy, especially for me who was very stressed about the whole recuiting process. Not only did she help me with recruiting, but she also taught me ways to deal with my mental strength on and off court. She gave me new strategies and ideas that I could use to keep calm and collected on the court, and she helped me bring my tennis to the next level by busking my mindset first. “
“You’ve really helped me with the workshop by teaching me how to control like my emotions and not to let the previous point influence the next point. Like I was using the 5 command terms and your techniques such as looking at the writing on the ball on an important point, and I found it to be really helpful in planning my next point, during the match play in ORC. I won a lot of important games because of those techniques and is was just a really good workshop in general :)”
“The workshop really helped me with my process after losing a point. Now, instead of getting upset after losing an important point and carrying it into the next one, I stop and take a couple of deep breaths that you taught us and go through the mental commands. I am also able to relate many of the triggers you showed us to matches I’ve played in the past and try to find ways to prevent them from bothering me when I play. This workshop has taught me a lot, thanks Patricia!”
“Selin loves the sessions and she feels she is able to apply them during her practice and matches. She won 5 out of 5 matches she played recently and qualified for provincials main draw. I would credit you for letting her have a deep dive into her mindset while practicing and playing. As sessions go she will get better.”
“My name is James Trotter, and I am currently on the men’s tennis team at The Ohio State University. Curing the COVID-19 pandemic, I spent five months working with Patricia. While I was training with her, she helped me through times where I lost the motivation to keep pusing myself, and instead guided me towards improvement. The biggest take-away that has impacted me while training with Patricia is the concept of “stacking good days on top of good days” so that I can improve my tennis, and become more mentally resilient.”
“Our son Ryan has had the privilege of working with Patricia for over 6 years. Growing up, Ryan was nationally ranked as a top 10 player and currently attends George Washington University on a D1 tennis scholarship. We feel very fortunate that Ryan has had the amazing opportunity to be coached by Patricia throughout his tennis career. Her past experience as a professional player, passion for the game, and extensive coaching knowledge have all played a major role in Ryan’s development – both on and off the tennis court. One of Patricia’s many strengths is her ability to get the most out of her players by preparing them both mentally and physically for high-level competition. We truly believe Patricia is one of Canada’s hidden tennis treasures!”
“My name is Denisa and I just wanted to share a quick note to you Patricia and let you know how amazing you are in your job. The way you are working with the athlete and the parents impressed me the most. You are organized, full of good advices, always available to answer any questions and to guide us in achieving the goals. Thank you very much for all your efforts and please continue helping us to step toward success!”
“My name is Emma, I am a tennis player. I haven’t been working with Patricia for too long, but so far I’ve really been enjoying it. She is very helpful advice and she has made my day-to-day life more productive and enjoyable. As a player it is important that I stay motivated and continue working hard and she has helped me a lot with that. She’s brought my whole team closer together and it’s been a lot easier to talk about my day-to-day life with someone who understands the process.”
“Thank you so much that every week you organized those interviews for us in this challenging time. Those are really great messages to help us to continue and stay positive. Hopefully we all can return to the ‘new normal world’ safely soon.”
So excellent you are doing this.
Anyone with the good fortune to hear you speak can trust they are getting better insight on the process than anyone in the business.
Having seen all sides your philosophy is timeless and valuable for anyone pursuing their limits in tennis.”
“I just wanted to say huge thank you for your amazing webinars!! I watched every single one of them and learned so much!! As a parent I can’t even express enough how greatfull and appreciative I am of these talks. Truly fantastic!!“
“Excellent webinar today with Leylah. Informative and conversational, with very good questions and moderating.“
“That is absolutely fantastic information to all players!!
“Thank you Patricia!
“Thank you for the zoom session with Alison. It was most enlightening and fun to watch. Have followed her career over the years as an umpire at the Open and other events. Just retired after over 30 years at the Open. Thanks for an interesting event. Well done!”
“Thank you for the insightful information you offered in the last 2 sessions of webinars. It is very close to heart!
My husband and I were born in Hong Kong and have a boy and a girl who play tennis competitively. They both started great but performed very poorly in the U12 category. We really have no idea how to proceed in tennis especially with our younger daughter. Coaches told us that she was one of the most “coachable” players in their career and 2 years ahead in fitness. None of those showed when she is on court or in tournament.
Anyway, your advice brought hope for our kids to take their tennis in next level. Looking forward to your next webinar.”
“Thank you so much for the awesome round table question and answer, on January 30th at the ORC. It was awesome for me because you really answered every question with such detail. It was great for any tennis parent. I am looking so forward to the next one!!!!”
“We met Patricia Hy five years ago as the on court coach at the Ontario Racquet Club. Her coaching went beyond teaching tennis skills, her energy and enthusiasm was contagious, and her professionalism was second to none.
Our daughter, Maya, was proudly aging out of U14 tennis. She was getting excited about U16/18 tennis, ITF tournaments, high school years were quickly there. As parents, we have already traveled the road of high performer junior sport with Maya’s older sister, who was national level athlete in her individual sport and was off to University. We knew tougher times were upon us.
Yet the next couple of years were tougher than we could have imagined, with many ups and downs, exciting wins and disappointing losses, injuries, travel and absence from school adding more pressure to everyday life.There were times we all felt tired and frustrated. Around the same time, we learned that Patricia has decided to focus her energy on the mental aspect of tennis and we were happy she was able to start working with Maya.
It has been about a year now that Maya is working with Patricia on the mental side of her tennis. They work together on strategies that develop skills to bring balance to tennis practice, competition and everyday challenges. She’s learning how they are all tightly woven together.
With the time we all started feeling more grounded and relieved as we knew Maya was in the right hands, we all were. Our team, coaches and us parents, is much stronger with Patricia on board.
I cannot think of anyone better for such a daunting task. Besides all her knowledge, Patricia brings her personal experience as a world-class player, on court coach, parent to teenage kids who are top junior players and trusting friend to us all.
Thank you, Patricia.”
“Wow you’re also a great public speaker!
