Erik was born and raised in Spain, Alicante. Erik loved all sports, but at the age of 7, he was introduced to the sport of tennis.
Erik began training at the prestigious Juan Carlos Ferrero Equelite Tennis Academy. He trained there for 10 years and began competing at the national level in the National Circuit of Spain.
Shortly after he began competing, Erik was offered a coaching position at the Montemar Atletico Tennis Club with great players like Ivan Navarro (60 ATP), Guillermo Garcia Lopez (20 ATP), and promising young players like Alexei Popyrin and Nicola Kuhn. He has accompanied his students around the world as they competed in Challengers, Futures, and ITF tournaments.
Erik came to the United States looking for more opportunities and exposure. The TIA family is happy to have his talent, enthusiastic spirit, and love of the game with our students!
