Nadim is a former top-rated German junior, who came to the USA in 1998 as a 17-year old to play on the pro circuit. He achieved a world ranking in singles on his first attempt, but a severe shoulder injury changed his path. In January 2000, Nadim joined the University of South Florida men’s tennis team and played 4 years for them, winning conference championships, captaining his junior and senior years, and making the All-Conference USA Team.
After graduating college with a B.A. in Marketing in December 2003, Nadim took on coaching high performance juniors (incl. No. 1 U16 in the USA) full-time before going back to school and earning his M.B.A. from the University of Tampa, where he acted as Assistant Tennis Coach for the women’s tennis team between 205 and 2007.
Since 2007, Nadim has been residing in Miami, where he enjoyed a 4-year spell from 2007-2011 as Co-Director and Head Pro at the renowned Cliff Drysdale Tennis (CDT) operated Ritz Carlton Tennis Garden in Key Biscayne, FL and Co-Director of the CDT Junior Summer Camp at Crandon Park. This is where his passion for technical tennis instruction came to the forefront, honing his skills in high performance junior development, as well as recreational adult training.
During his first year in Miami, Nadim met Florian Meier, founder and owner of OnlineTennisInstruction.com (OTI). In recent years, Nadim has studied extensively and adopted the OTI teaching methods and co-hosted all 8 Florida-based OTI tennis clinics together with Florian. His passion for proper technical tennis instruction led him to join forces with OTI and become an expert instructor for OTI clientele, offering lessons in Ft. Lauderdale, FL year-round, starting July 2015. Nadim serves as a representative of OTI at this year’s US Tennis Congress.
Also, in 2011, Nadim co-founded and now owns WAM Sports – Premier Student Athlete Services, where junior athletes and families from around the world go to obtain the best advice and guidance in their college recruiting process, matching them with their best-fit colleges.
