Originally from Mexico City, she was consistently ranked as one of the best players in the country. Her stellar junior, collegiate and professional playing careers have carried over into her teaching, where she specializes in doubles strategies, the mental game, timing, the mechanics of the stroke, as well as building tennis players to maximize their potential as well as tennis programs. In her junior career, Mercedes was the National Doubles Champion for four consecutive years from the age of 14 through 18. During that time she also represented Mexico in the best world junior tournaments: The Orange Bowl Tournament held in FL, Sunshine Cup Tournament held in FL, and The Casa Blanca Tournament held in Mexico City. She played both singles and doubles. Mercedes is excited to share her expertise with those on the tennis and pickleball courts at Oasis!
Vitor is from Brasilia, Brazil. He started playing tennis at the age of 11, which is considered late if one wants to play competitive Junior tennis. However, he quickly got the hang of it, and with discipline and hard work he was able to become a top 5 player in the country at the age of 16. At the age of 17, Vitor won back to back National Championships Under 18 and started his professional career on the ATP tour.
Vitor had the opportunity to play against players who today are among the best in the world, such as American Jared Donaldson (former # 48 in the world), Japanese Yoshihito Nishioka (currently # 48 in the world), Colombian Juan Sebastian Cabal (former #1 in the world doubles, currently ranked #2, and two time Grand Slam champion), just to name a few.
