Steven was the Belgium National Junior Tennis Champion in 1982 but decided his career path should focus on coaching. In 1987 he became a coach at the Belgium National Training Centre under the watchful eye and subsequently life-long mentorship of Ivo Van Aken. Steven became the personal coach to many top players including Sabine Appelmans from 1996-2000 whose career-high WTA ranking peaked at No.16. Steve also worked with Xavier Malisse in 2002 whose career-high ATP ranking reached No.19. In 1997, Steven was awarded the ITF Coach Fair Play Award. Before moving on to his current role in football, Steve worked for both the Belgian and British federations.
