Both brothers have competed at a high level and fill their home shelves with trophies. Even though their stories are very different, both have come to the same conclusion: Tennis is an excellent vehicle to acquire learning for life.

From the beginning, both Carlos and David were clear about their goal: to become professional players. After so many years they acquire many personal experiences, a great know-how of the tennis industry and several values such as dedication, responsibility and effort. All these experiences have formed a clear purpose in mind of these young coaches. This small seed would later  be the soul of the company that they found.

David Canudas is the eldest brother. Thanks to his exemplary discipline and his successful career, he obtained a scholarship to play tennis at a prestigious university in the United States, the University of Southern Mississippi. At this university he became a great tennis player. As a result of living alone in another country, he grew and enhanced all his qualities. For four years, David showed almost total dedication to tennis, becoming among the top 50 US college players. He became the best player of all time at his university a record that nowadays still unbroken.

Upon David finishing his university, he decided to return to Spain to engage in professional tennis and play in the ATP. He reached the semifinals in the first ATP tournament, beating players with a much higher ranking.  He played on the tour for 4 years competing, traveling and meeting people. His best ATP ranking was 516 in singles and top 300 in doubles. Carlos, the youngest of the brothers Canudas always had a great desire to excel. Despite being younger than David, he competed with him in the same tournaments. He was very demanding of himself and trained more hours than anyone. His hard work made him overcome his brother at age 16 becoming the number 280 in the ranking of Spain. However, one month before national tournament, he began suffering back problems, and doctors advised him not to participate in the Nationals, risk to suffer further injury. He continued to train and recovered his best, but his back was seriously injured keeping him away of tennis for a year. He had painful rehabilitation. When he recovered, and at 17, he went to a night school to continue training. However, the fate of Carlos was not to become a professional player. Three months after his recovery, during his first tournament, injury fall again. This time the doctors told him that he could never engage in high competition tennis. This news was devastating to Carlos, because tennis was his life. There were hard times but, following the advice of his brother, he went to America, where he won a scholarship to play at Northwood University, Illinois.

Carlos recovered the illusion and transformed adversity into opportunity. He decided to study International Business, and for four years played at a high level reaching a good ranking and winning several state tournaments. Subsequently, the university offered him to expand his scholarship to study a Master´s degree (MBA), and continue on playing for the Northwood team. That was the last year that Carlos competed. A year later, after working for Spanish company on a different industry, Carlos returned to Barcelona with a very powerful idea inside. He knew his life was tennis and even eventhough he could not compete, there were other ways to succeed in this sport. He had the opportunity to help two young players from his former club, and then decided his future. He decided to devote his life to provide necessary means to  work up successful players. As Steve Jobs said, “You can’t connect the dots looking forward” and only now is it possible to understand that everything that happened to the Canudas brothers, both in their professional career and in their life, had a much greater meaning than they had thought-out.
