Developing your full potential
I just wanted to thank you for all the time you have spent with me. I had a great time working with you this past weekend, and I learned so much from you. You are so knowledgeable and I feel blessed to have you as a teacher, mentor, and more than anything... a great friend. You have been awesome for helping me deal with my problems and obstacles. I am a better person because of your wonderful guidance and support, and I wanted to thank you. I will be in touch.
Your system prepared me for college tennis
How are you doing? I have been extremely busy for the past month getting ready for college at TCU. I wanted to let you know that your program has been THE DIFFERENCE MAKER IN MY TENNIS PERFORMANCES since I started it. I had a great Kalamazoo. I played some of the best tennis I've played in years.
I just started classes at TCU this week and have been training with the team unofficially for about two weeks. My coach says that I am one of the most mentally tough players he has seen in a while. Joey Rive, my coach, was top 50 in the world for a while so he knows when he sees a good player. I just wanted to thank you for all of the support and help you have given me over the years. I found you at one of the lowest parts of my career and together we have turned that around. I am still continuing your program because I believe in your work.
Thanks again Jorge.
An enjoyable an effective system
Hi Dr. Valverde,
Just an update on my daughter's progression with your mental preparation program. We started the first stage "Flooding to Zoning" on February 1st. Tori absolutely loves the program. She was very impressed that you took the time to talk to her over the phone. She has been very faithful to listen each day and apply appropriately to her day. Tori has a very strong tennis game technique wise, and aggressive style of tennis, but has always struggled with believing in herself. She is only 9, but liked we talked about it is never too young to start. Since starting the program, she has entered two USTA junior super series tournaments, and has won both of them. She has become a different child on the court. She really has started to enjoy the battle instead of the "score" game. She told me the other day; she now walks out and lets her game do the playing. I have seen her down 5 to love, and appear in her actions, that the match has just started.
We are all looking forward to the changes it will make over a lifetime. Not only on the court, but in her confidence of who she is as a person.
Thank you so much for taking that time to talk to her, and show you are truly interested. I will keep you updated.
Your CDs helped me already
I got your CD’s 5 days ago, and I already have listened to them. I want thank you so much for them, and for helping me to get better mentally, and get better in tennis. They helped me already, and it just fun to listen to them. I hope I will hear from you soon, take care and thanks again.
Confidence for life
Hey Dr. Jorge,
How's it going where you are? Everything down here is awesome.... I'll be finished Friday with the first part of the program... we've already had High school matches, and I've just felt so much more confident and relaxed when I get ready to play.... I've already read from the beginning of the book to page 21, and that also helped a lot. I still listen to track 4 whenever possible and that also helped to contribute...well I'm the only one on the team who hasn't lost any matches so far.... I just thought I'd email you and keep you updated on the situation....
Can I forward some of your e-mails to my team players?? I have recommended your services to several people already, hopefully, they will be getting in touch with you. This weekend Claire played in the Southern Designated 18's and did well. Her mental game is so much better. I could not tell if she was winning or losing. She is doing all that you have asked her to do. One of her opponents mother's came up to me after Claire had beaten her 17 year old daughter and said how impressed she was that at Claire's age even when she was winning easily and was obviously the better player, she still read her cards every changeover!! Thanks so much for all you have done in two short weeks. I know that this is a long road and I really want her to enjoy this process- I think she does!
Now I am playing without stress or fear
Thank you for the articles. I hope you don't mind that I printed them out so I can read them often. The light and sound system is working great. I feel myself more calm and relaxed during matches. I can play big points with no stress or fear. Thanks again for everything!

I beat their #1 guy who was 40 in the country
I just wanted to let you know that things have been going pretty well lately. I had a great trip in Tulsa. I beat their #1 guy who was 40 in the country 6-3 in the third. He actually served for the match in the second, but I stayed very positive and tough. I lost my first match this week to Florida state's #1. I played fairly well, but felt like I was not as aggressive as I need to be against the better players I see. I've been working in practice on being aggressive, even overly aggressive. As I have found though, that is more of a mindset than anything else. I have the physical qualities within me, but I need to be conscious of those qualities mentally in order to bring them out. We travel this weekend to play William and Mary then wake forest, so it will be two more opportunities to improve on this aggressive thinking and playing. I will stay in contact with you.
Thanks for the help.
You have been such a big part in my march to success
Hi Jorge! How's everything going? Here is a picture of us at Winter Nationals. I just wanted to thank you for everything that you have done for me. You have been such a big part in my march to success in the last two years leading up to my first gold ball in singles. I am so stoked about the future involving my tennis career and your program. It's such an exciting process. Anyways, just a short thank you and I can't wait to take this to even more heights. I will be sending you my Winter Nationals script and strokes soon.
