"You can't talk about Tina Samara without completely understanding the full picture, that is, she has lived on all four sides of what it takes to be a champion person on and off the court. Those four sides include, former Georgia Bulldog, NCAA champion, pro tennis player, semi-pro golfer, US College Coach of Division 1 for 11 years and now helping student-athletes live their goals and dreams for the future. Her tennis experience and knowledge cannot be underestimated and that is why she mentors many student-athletes today. Tina knows what it takes to climb the ranks as a player, as well as having the unique ability to walk in the shoes of a tennis coach, so that she can ultimately combine all of this knowledge to deliver a first class experience for her students, clients, players and colleagues. I cannot recommend her highly enough because she is honest, loyal and will over deliver on your expectations time and time again."
