Simon's Story

When Simon was growing up, he loved playing lots of sports, including tennis. He’d train against a wall every day and stay up late at night watching Wimbledon, dreaming of one day playing there. By 1983, Simon’s commitment as a player and good coaching, resulted in him winning the Italian, French, Wimbledon, Canadian and US Open Junior Doubles titles with Mark Kratzmann. Although he reached the final of the Australian and US Open Junior Singles, he lost to a worthy opponent, Stefan Edberg.

Simon then went on the Pro Circuit for 12 years and became a Top 100 ATP Tour Singles and Doubles player, joining the historical list of Pros that have won ATP Tour Singles titles.

Injuries forced his retirement at the age of 30 and Simon then took on the role of State and National Coach Tasmania for Tennis Australia for the next 18 years.

Now he is a private high performance coach who wants to help you achieve your dreams and get the most out of your tennis and enjoy the journey.

We love to hear from you:)

Simon Youl has been a coach and mentor of mine for many years; in my experience he is one of the best technical and tactical coaches in Australia. Being an ex pro tour player his skill set as a coach is formed from first hand knowledge of the game. His understanding of both the on and off court needs of a player can help at any level. Simon is a patient and caring coach that will always aim to inspire athletes regardless of where they are in their game. He is one of the many reasons that I have become the player that I am today.

Simon is someone you can always count on. For the past 12 years Simon has been a coach, mentor and a friend to me, always encouraging me to achieve my potential – to be the best I can be. Tennis is a journey, and Simon helps his athletes develop much more than the basic skills of tennis. Under Simon’s guidance I have learnt so much about myself while developing resilience, courage and strength. Technically, Simon is one of the very best, known for his impeccable eye for detail which is then matched to a burning passion for the game, which makes every moment on court with him truly valuable.

Youly has been integral in many aspects of my life. When I walked on court to meet him at the age of 12, I was met with his passion and positivity for the game, and I knew he was the type of person I wanted to further develop my career in tennis with. Years later, I can confidently say, that not only did he impact my career in a positive way, but I grew on a personal level as well. Youly provides his players with the tools to create the complete package of a successful athlete and I was lucky enough to be able to experience the dedication, attention to detail and upmost respect he has for those he works with. He is instrumental to anyone who wants to succeed in this game.
