Tim Mayotte is focusing his energies on building the best junior development tennis program in America at the Thoreau Club.

Mayotte has spent the last fifteen years working with top juniors and pros including Louisa Chirico (as high as #60 WTA) William Blumberg (No #2 college player in the nation last year) and three others who were ranked top 5 nationally in their age division. Since moving back to the area a few years ago, he has trained a small and extremely successful group of juniors including multiple No #1 ranked players.

Tim is ecstatic to be back on his home turf. Born and raised in Springfield, Massachusetts, he is considered the best player ever to come out of New England. Mayotte beat every great of his era including Agassi, Sampras, Becker, Connors, Wilander, Edberg, and McEnroe spending most of four years inside the ATP Top Ten. He was a semifinalist and five-time quarterfinalist at Wimbledon and he reached the semifinals of the Australian Open in 1983.

Mayotte stormed to the finals of the 1988 Olympic Games in Seoul, taking home the men's singles Silver Medal for the USA in 1988. Also, he played on the US Davis Cup teams in 1986 and 1987. Mayotte began his pro career after helping his team win the NCAA title and taking home the NCAA Singles crown at Stanford in 1981.

Tim served as President of the ATP Players Council (recently held by Roger Federer), as well as serving on the ATP Board of Directors. He left the game for a few years to get his M.A. in Psychology and Theology from Union Theological Seminary in New York City.

He came back to tennis and found his greatest passion in developing top junior talent. Tim is determined to create world-class champions here in the Boston Area at the Junior Tennis Academy at The Thoreau Club. He will train all the pros and players in his revolutionary training methodology called “The Framework.”
