Gaurav Malhotra is very accomplished Junior Development coach with whom I  worked at STEC . His focus, passion and  knowledge to develop young athletes into top tennis players is recognized and commended in tennis world.  He recognises each  player's needs and is one of the best Junior Development coaches, in my opinion.

Gaurav Malhotra is a gifted coach with whom I had the opportunity to work for a few years. He has a keen sense of the game which makes him an outstanding coach he has successfully worked with top Indian ranked Men's and Woman's players including Indian Davis cup & Fed Cup Player. In my opinion Gaurav is among the elite group of the world's finest tennis coach.


-Arun Kumar, Coach Indian Junior Grand Slam teams & Commonwealth games!




Gaurav and I had worked together for almost a year before he decided to move to the USA permanently for further learning in tennis. I had one of my best seasons on the ATP/ITF circuit while working with Gaurav and made an immense progress in all of the aspects of my game with his excellent workouts. With his sharp focus and precision he spots minute mistakes that tend to creep in and immediately corrects them before they become big, which is one of his best qualities you look for in a tennis coach. This, I believe, comes from his worldwide exposure of high performance training programs and working with a very large number of tennis players. 

Just like in any other area, high performance oriented task in tennis is challenging and highly demanding. Gaurav takes utmost care of developing world standard work ethics in all of his players, which enables them to get ready to face the toughest of competitions and come to the top. His high octane energy on court makes sure there is decline  in the intensity required for training.  Gaurav's passion and commitment makes him stand out from the crowd. 

Also, Gaurav is an excellent communicator and a patient listener. All his sessions are well thought out and planned and he makes sure to discuss almost everything with the players so both, the trainee and the coach, are on the same page. 

I had a great time working with him and I wish Gaurav the best of luck in all his future endeavors.

 "Gaurav Malhotra is a very passionate, motivational, and accomplished tennis coach who can help you train and play at your maximum potential. He had been training me in year 2003/04 in New Delhi. Gaurav's help was a key support for me during tough transition years of junior tennis. From technique, tactical to mental aspects, Gaurav touched many topics of tennis with his deep and detailed insight. It was an absolute pleasure working with Gaurav to me and, I believe, all the players who have worked with him. I would recommend Gaurav Malhotra to anyone who really wants to improve their tennis game".

Gaurav is teaching my sons lessons that will prepare them well for all aspects of life.”


-Buks Moolman, former top-10 South African national junior player, and father of two developing players 


"Gaurav is one of the most sincere tennis coaches we have known.  His passion & knowledge for the game of tennis shines through when he is on the court.  When we think of high intensity training, a genuine love for the game, and a coach taking a personal interest in each of his students, we can't help but think of Gaurav."


-Erik & Karen Johnson, parents of TR Blue Chip Player Magnus Johnson.




I began working with Gaurav in 2011, when I was 20 years old. Despite my age and level at the time, he was completely committed from the start. He broke down my bad habits, unorthodox technique, and helped build me up over the next 3 years into a solid player. Gaurav is a special coach, he takes every student he has and immerses himself in their tennis, and lives. I have spent a great deal of time with Gaurav, and not once did I feel as though he ever took what he does for granted. He genuinely loves tennis, and helping his students meet their goals. To Gaurav, building players and doing it the right way is his main focus. Gaurav not only teaches his students the physical necessities of tennis, but that tennis also requires heart and soul.
