I am Max Wenders, I'm born and raised in the Netherlands. I played national tournaments until I was 19, my highest ranking in the Netherlands was top 50. My experiences as a coach and hitting partner, In 2014 I started working with Demi Schuurs until I got an offer from Jelena Ostapenko to travel and work with her. I started working with Jelena early 2016 until Wimbledon. Early 2017 I worked some tournaments with Kirsten Flipkens untill I got an offer to be the coach of Amra Sadikovic. Because we didn’t agree on the way of working I decided to stop working with her. Last year I have been coaching Demi Schuurs again, we started the year ranked as 45 and after winning Brisbane, Hobart, Rome, Nürnberg, S-Hertogenbosch, Montreal, Wuhan and a final in Birmingham, Cincinnati and a semi final in Miami we were ranked 7 and qualified for the Singapore finals. During 2018 I combined Schuurs a couple of weeks with Anett Kontaveit. Summary of tournaments I have been working as coach or hitting partner: • Grand Slam tournaments: Australian Open 3x, Roland Garros 2x, Wimbledon 3x, US open 3x. • Masters tournaments: Indian Wells, Miami, Madrid, Rome, Eastbourne, Birmingham, Montreal, Cincinnati, New Haven, Brisbane, Doha, Stuttgart, Tokyo and lots of WTA International events (Hobart, Rabat, Acapulco, Budapest, Rosmalen, Mallorca and many more) • Numerous ITF Junior tournaments: India, Israel, England, France, Germany and many more as coach of academy and as coach of the Belgium Federation. My native language is Dutch, other languages I speak are English and basics of German. I live in the Netherlands but I am willing to travel as many weeks as neccessary.
