HATBORO, Pa., March 7 /PRNewswire/ --
The Sports Network, the nation's foremost real-time sports wire service, has announced an agreement with Vic Braden, longtime sports science researcher, licensed psychologist and the founder of Vic Braden Sports Instruction and the Vic Braden Tennis College, which are held nationwide at premier resorts, to contribute tennis features to http://www.sportsnetwork.com
and, accordingly, to their international wire service as well as the branded sites of hundreds of clients worldwide. A spokesperson for TSN added that Mr. Braden has also produced sixteen instructional videos that incorporate his research and his coaching knowledge.
"Vic Braden is a gem, an icon in the world of tennis although it is admitted," stated Mickey Charles, president & CEO of The Sports Network, "that those who know of John McEnroe, Jimmy Connors, Pete Sampras, Billie Jean King, Chris Evert, Martina Navratilova, Amelie Mauresmo, Justine Henin-Hardenne, Kim Clijsters, Lindsay Davenport, Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer, David Nalbandian and Ivan Ljubicic
will not be instantly conversant with Vic. That certainly does not lessen his credentials nor diminish his ability to contribute a learning experience, advice and some humor.
"His lighthearted approach is endearing and his motto of 'Laugh and Win' has helped shape the resoundingly positive attitudes of decades of students. In his books, videos, Tennis Colleges, and speeches," continued Mr. Charles, "Vic strives to teach effectively and connect with students on a personal level, aiming to uncover the 'genius to perform' that he believes rests in every individual. And, from what I know, he succeeds admirably. The fact that he and I graduated from the same university," he concluded, "was sheer coincidence. Besides, said with a smile, he predated me."
Mr. Braden has authored six books, contributed to publications such as Sports Illustrated, and continues to author editorials for several publications such as Tennis Week and Tennis Life. In addition, he has appeared on popular television shows including NBC's Today Show, hosted his own television shows on PBS and ESPN, and provided televised tennis commentary for numerous professional events.
Working with famous sports researchers for several decades, Vic finds great joy in passing on new and valuable information as he strives to help students maximize their performance and enjoyment of this great sport in the shortest period of time.
"In our (thoroughly biased) opinion," added Scott Riley, Tennis Editor for The Sports Network, "Vic is simply the best. Tennis has, admittedly, stood on the sidelines watching golf eclipse it as not only a participation sport but one whose fan base has gathered momentum from year to year and season to season. The growing resurgence in tennis recently can use the insight, guidance and wit of Vic Braden. We're fortunate to have him on our team."
