Paola Longoria, #1 WPRO Pro Player, Hires Fran Davis

I cannot tell you just how excited I am to be working with Paola. I have been watching her for years through her junior career and now as the #1 Women’s Professional Player in the World. The one thing that impresses me the most about her is her intensity level on the court when she is competing. She is totally focused and her level of concentration is incredible. I actually commentated the Finals at the 2009 US Open, Memphis, TN, for Racquetballonline.tv featuring Paola Longoria, the defending US Open Champion, and Rhonda Rasjich, the 2008 US Open Champion.

Jessica and her partner, Amanda, were going to represent the USA at the Jr. World Championships in

Who wouldn’t want to be in Taylor’s shoes as he is following his dreams of becoming a professional athlete. I met Taylor when he was 12 years old and for the last 7 years we have been working together to perfect his game.
