Yhale is amazing. I travelled to Honolulu with my daughter for an USTA national tournament and needed someone to hit with her to prepare for the tournament. Yhale made sure he knew what she needed to work on before he hit with her. He also connected her to another talented player. Finally, he came to watch her play in the tournament to support her. I wish there was a category higher than 5 stars as Yhale was more than excellent. He went above and beyond to enhance our experience in Honolulu. Thank you Yhale. We will be back next year and he will be the first person I call to make arrangements for him to work with my daughter again.
