Tennis Lifestyle Podcast is not only about tennis but much more - INTERVIEW TO YARI BERNARDO

Gianluca Sola is the host and creator of the Tennis Lifestyle Podcast. I am an Italian living in beautiful Cape Town, South Africa. I decided to start my very own podcast in 2020. This idea or project started because I am an avid listener of podcasts, but especially because I have a huge passion for tennis.

I have 2 kids who play competitive tennis, I also play in my free time and attempt to coach my kids as well. The aim of my podcast is to talk about tennis....and life. There are many podcasts out there that talk about tournaments, players, techniques etc etc...I wanted to try and incorporate a bit of everything and, at the same time, get to know better the people I interview, their stories, journeys, passions and so on...

So the Tennis Lifestyle Podcast is not only about tennis but much more! I am not a professional journalist or podcaster, but I hope my listeners will grow and follow me and the podcast. My first year has already been incredible and have had the privileged to interview some of the most important people in tennis including Jofre Porta, David Sammel and Nathan Martin, and many more!

The most amazing aspect of interviewing these amazing personalities is that I always end up learning something new and educating myself! I hope you enjoy the podcast....happy listening Ciao Yari is an old classmate from Italy.

He has been involved in tennis all his life. He is currently the coach of Marcelo Arevalo (top ATP doubles player), Davis Cup Captain of El Salvador, and is the owner and founder of Yari Bernardo Tennis School, Milan, Italy.
