doug_eng2Just in time for the US Open we have a tennis expert who is, most impressively, this year’s winner of the Doc Counsilman Science Award, part of the U.S. Olympic Committee’s Coaches of the Year accolades.

Doug is a Master Professional with the US Professional Tennis Association and an International Master Professional with the Professional Tennis Registry, one of just 10 people worldwide to hold both honors.

Doug is co-chair of the USPTA National Education Committee and College Curriculum Committee and has worked with athletes of all levels, including ITF, WTA and Davis Cup players. In addition, Doug teaches and consults in sport psychology and physical training and does technical and tactical research. He has both a PhD in chemical engineering and an Educational Doctorate in Sports Psychology.
