In this episode I’m sat in the reception area of the Marriott hotel in downtown Banja Luka. Why? Because at the moment the first ATP 250 Tennis Tournament is under way in Banja Luka.
This tournament is also called the Srpska Open, as Banja Luka is in the entity of Republika Srpska.
I have managed to get to talk to David Sammel the coach of British player Liam Broady.
I find out about tournament life, how a coach motivates and supports his player, the importance of mind-set and much more.
