Gordon Uehling, a former ATP (Association of Tennis Professionals) world-ranked player both in singles and doubles, is the visionary behind the CourtSense program in New Jersey, USA. CourtSense currently works with over 500 kids with 22 full time tennis coaches and 5 full time fitness trainers on staff. At a young age, Gordon excelled in multiple sports which helped prepare him for his true passion in developing tennis players. Gordon believes deeply in developing children to be fit, agile, responsible, and in their earlier pre-teen years to be trained in a variety of sports. He had long dreamed of developing a top-quality multi-faceted instructional program that integrates all of these values, a program he had often wished was available to him as a junior player. During his last three years on the tour, Gordon trained under Jose Higueras, one of the most accomplished coaches in tennis, and travelled with Coach Carlos Cano, currently Director of Player Development and Coaches at CourtSense. He also worked with Dr. James Loehr, recognized as the most influential sports psychologist in tennis, and later was a student of his work. While on tour, Gordon trained with top world-ranked players such as Pete Sampras, Jim Courier and Todd Martin.
Through these extraordinary experiences, Gordon gained an extensive knowledge and a deep understanding of the game of tennis and sports science. He is currently part of Novak Djokovic's coaching team (#1 in the world) as an advisor/consultant and was one of Christina McHale’s coach for 6 years (Highest ranking 24 in the world WTA). In the past Gordon has worked with world class players, Vince Spadea (formerly #19 in the world), Dmitry Tursunov (formerly #21 in the world) and Luis Flores (formerly #9 in the world in ITF Juniors), among many others. Gordon, along with Director of Tennis Ogi Nikolovski, has worked tirelessly handpicking the best coaches from all over the world. The CourtSense program that he has developed with Carlos Cano, along with a tremendously committed team, is a dream that has come to fruition.
