Frances Tiafoe Coaches
From age 8 to 17, Tiafoe was coached at the Junior Tennis Champions Center in Maryland by Misha Kouznetsov, who had played college tennis at UMBC and coached tennis at Robert Morris. Kouznetsov left his job at the JTCC to work with Tiafoe full-time.
After Tiafoe moved to Florida to train with the USTA, he was coached by José Higueras from Spain, who had led fellow Americans Michael Chang and Jim Courier to Grand Slam titles. Tiafoe also worked with Nicolás Todero while at USTA. Robby Ginepri, a former US Open semifinalist, started coaching Tiafoe in the fall of 2016.
Tiafoe’s friend Zack Evenden began to assist and coach him shortly before he won his first ATP title in 2018. Evenden took over as Tiafoe’s primary coach before the start of the 2019 season. In the 2020 season, he employed former top-10 player Wayne Ferreira as an additional coach. In July 2021, Tiafoe and Evenden parted ways by joint agreement, and Ferreira became his primary coach.
Frances Tiafoe Playing style
Like numerous of his top-ranked American contemporaries such as Jack Sock and Sam Querrey, Tiafoe plays an assertive awful game that relies on a big serve and powerful forehand. At 6 feet 2 inches tall, he can launch serves at over 140 mph, and regularly hits first serves between 120 and 140 mph.
After facing him at the 2016 US Open, John Isner said that he could return his serve—widely considered as one of the best in the game—as well as any player on tour outside of Novak Djokovic. He also said that Tiafoe’s second serve could use improvement.
Tiafoe’s most unique shot is his forehand, which holds heavy topspin and is guided by an unusual arm motion. When he won the 2018 Delray Beach Open, he credited an improved service for his better play in the tournament.
