Tennis is more than just a sport and that is well known to every person who has made this beautiful discipline a style and livelihood, a profession that we proudly exercise in this academy, which has received a new member in its team, Marc Giner.
Born in Pego (Alicante) on June 18, 1991, Marc learned about tennis thanks to a sports family, so his taste for tennis came from home. “My father was a soccer player in the third division and a tennis fan, I like him, I liked both, but when I was fourteen I gave up football and decided to focus on tennis,” recalls who reached the box 245 of the ATP.
Giner lived the dream of being a professional tennis player and in his record there are nineteen championship titles in Future ITF tournaments, an enormous experience that now, as coach of the Lozano-Altur Tennis Academy, he will share with his students.
“My main objective is to convey good points of view to the players, help in what I can to focus their careers positively and above all, not to make my mistakes as a player” confesses the coach from Alicante. “Also that they understand more easily, from my experience, our work philosophy”, adds Marc Giner.

In addition to being a high performance training center, the academy has also been considered by many students and alumni as a family, where they have felt more than comfortable while developing their game and working on their training. Returning, therefore, can be considered a natural step for those who want to continue a career linked to white sport, giving back some of what they have learned to future generations in a highly appreciated and valued environment.
“All Spaniards, and even more those in the area, know this great team”, says Marc about his approach to this academy. “My closest relationship with Lozano-Altur began when I arrived as a player and trained at this academy from the age of 24 to 27. After retiring and now at 29 years old I am a coach here”, proudly says the new member of our work team.
Tennis is a very tough, demanding discipline, where there are titanic struggles to go far on a lonely path that leads the player to travel thousands of kilometers to try to achieve the dream, but also to be able to live, so the passion for what What is done is more than fundamental, and Giner knows that very well, who reveals his love for the game. “I love tennis, playing, watching it, talking about tennis, that’s very key,” he considers. “I live tennis intensely and with a lot of passion, for me it is a way of life”, he reaffirms.
