The son of a Greek businessman and a French mother, Patrick realized tennis was his passion from a very young age. However his parents did not believe in his dream and led him to a traditional career path, far from the tennis sphere. Because of this decision, Patrick aimed to offer others the chances he never had and founded his first tennis academy in 1996.

The Ultimate Tennis Showdown is a new exciting and innovative international tennis league, representing a special format, not comparable to the traditional concept of tennis. In the first four editions of the league, 7 top 10 players competed in matches livestreamed on UTS’ very own platform, “UTS Live” and broadcasted in over 100 countries.
From failing on his original plan of becoming a tennis champion, Patrick Mouratoglou used that experience to shape his future and reach excellence. He effectively turned this frustration into motivation to help his players make their dreams come true.
Driven by passion, he learns as much as possible about his players and tries to enter their own ‘universe’ in order to understand their emotions — how they think and feel on and off the court.
His methodology is customized to each player because there is no recipe for success. Result-oriented, he pays close attention to the smallest details because they often make the biggest differences. It’s a constant investigation around one single obsession: the result.
