    Love the podcast
    I love listening to this podcast! Merhban has interesting topics, great guests, and a very relaxing voice. (I cant listen to some podcast channels as the voice(s)are annoying.) Merhban is humble (will tell stories of his own struggles) and a little corny, but in a good way where he makes it fun! I have been listening to him for a long time and I am glad to have posted his 100th review!!!

    Contact point
    The contact point episode is one of the best! Not only the instructional particulars but very importantly the emphasis on contact point as a key priority. For me, the episode arrived at an essential time: I was struggling with what to really focus on for development— mental, footwork, strategy, technique? Knowing we can really only concentrate on one or two things at a time. The episode brought me the answer: point of contact. Interestingly, as the episode discusses, working on contact point also requires footwork, strategy and tactics. By coincidence (or not) I had already ordered a special racquet designed to help with contact point training. Here we go! Thank you Mehrban for continuing the Tennis Files!

    The tennis files with Mehrban Iranshad
    Fantastic podcast with useful tennis tips especially for different level tennis players and coaches. This podcast got me through the 2020 pandemic and I listened on my way up to 2021 sectionals with my 4.5 team. I think technically you have what you have at playoffs but mentally it’s always good to listen to Mehrban! Keep up the great interviews and content!

I love the focus on how to get better and the mix of sharing his own experience and interviewing coaches within every aspects of the game. Really incredible content Mehrban creates for our tennis community including the yearly tennis summit and I appreciate that a lot. Fun to listen to while learning and enjoying this wonderful sport!!

    What a great way to bring to life the best monster encyclopedia than to grab the best of the best in every aspect and putting it all together for everyone to nourish from. Great episode organization, great content and great humor! Recently had a job promotion which came with an hour of commute and I’m never going to dread it because it gives me the chance to enhance every aspect of my tennis career through just enjoying a great conversation with the greatest minds in the sport. Couldn't be more happy with this podcast.

    Great for players and coaches (at least this one)
    This is a great podcast for recreational and league players and even coaches. I’ve only started listening this year, but I’ve listened to earlier episodes as well. And several episodes I’ve listened to several times. I’m not a career tennis professional, but I am a high school tennis coach, and this podcast has been very helpful to me as a coach.

    Great podcast
    Good depth of topics. Probably the best overall tennis podcast out there.
  • LudaBang
    Smart tennis talk
    Most tennis shows I used to listen to do recaps of tournaments and give their opinions. Mehrban interviews really interesting people with unique perspectives at all levels of tennis. The interview with David Fish was so thought provoking. This is the best tennis podcast hands down. Thanks.
  • CoachBetts
    Few as selfless and passionate as Mehrban. Appreciate the love and wonder with which he approaches the game.

    Guests to Inspire Tennis Development
    I have been listening to Mehrban for several months now and can say that I have learned something about tennis that applies to my game from every single interview. I am a 40+ 4.0ish league doubles and singles player with renewed aspirations of being the best I can be after a long break from last playing in high school! Great content, variety of sophisticated guests and topics, wonderful - often free - resources for all levels. Nice work and thanks so much :)
  • TheRealBD
    Outstanding content
    Mehrban does a terrific job keeping the topics fresh and he is an extremely polite and engaging host. This is by far THE BEST tennis podcast out there. Go back and start from the beginning and work your way through the podcasts and you'll see (hear, actually) the learning curve he went through to become a little more comfortable/less stilted/awkward with his guests. It is actually refreshing to hear someone as genuine and authentic as Mehrban Iranshad on his TennisFiles podcast. Thanks for your gifts to our game!!!

    Well done, always improving!
    The interview with Clay Thompson is invaluable. Thanks for all the hard work!
  • merdely
    Has already helped my game!
    I've been catching up through old episodes of TFP and have been learning a lot. I've learned specific things to help my game like trying to set up points to exploit my strengths and drills like having my hitting partner hit to me when I can only use my weapon. I've even decided to try stringing my racket at an even lower tension after listening to a Master Racket Technician say that he recommends going with the lowest tension you're comfortable with. I like Mehrban's philosophies, including continually striving to improve. I'm almost done making my way through the older podcasts and can't wait to get to the new ones.
