Johan Kriek and Hana Mandlikova Help Youngsters with their Game

Tennis - Former Grand Slam champions Johan Kriek and Hana Mandlikova helped youngsters with their game at the Johan Kriek Tennis Academy at PGA National Resort and Spa. According to CBS12, Mandlikova said she is happy to teach youngsters with tennis as it still remains her passion.

"I love tennis, it's my passion and the only thing I know so I said to myself, why not do something (for the game) with Johan. It's just a pleasure, it's nice, I love to (teach) small kids." Kriek commented, "I think good tennis teachers at any level are good story tellers.

They are good people people, so if you tell a good story you bring knowledge to a person, they suck it up like a sponge, and they take that knowledge and make it their own." Kriek won two Australian Open titles and won 14 singles and 8 doubles title in his career.

Mandlikova won four Grand Slam singles titles: the 1980 Australian Open, 1981 French Open, 1985 US Open, and the 1987 Australian Open and reached No. 3 in the rankings. Also Read - Kristina Mladenovic Says She Really Likes Roger Federer .
