The ACE System and our Mentor (Heath Waters)

Every professional tour player that Heath Waters has ever coached has improved their ranking by a minimum of 140 spots or more within 12 months or less of working with Heath. In 2005 Ashley Harkleroad came out of retirement and Heath coached her for 8 months until Heath signed a coaching contract with ATP Tour player Alex Bogomolov Jr. In the 8 months Heath coached WTA Tour player Ashley Harkleroad, her ranking improved from 324 to 75 in the world on the WTA Rankings. Along the way, Ashley won 3 professional titles and had a 35-9 win/loss record while under Heath’s tutelage. Heath also developed Ashley from 8yrs old- 15 Years old. In 2005-2006 Heath coached ATP Tour player Alex Bogomolov Jr. from July 2005 to July 2006. Under Heath’s tutelage, Alex improved his ranking from 275 to 120 in the world. Along the way, Alex won one single’s professional title and two double’s titles. Alex also upset the top 10 ranked player in the world, Fernando Gonzalez, at the Australian Open. Alex also had wins over top ATP players Ivo Karlovic, Sam Querry, Kei Nishikori, Julien Benneteau, and many other top-ranked ATP players while under Heath’s tutelage. Alex has continued his success and has reached a career-high 33 in the world on the ATP. Before Heath began coaching full-time on the professional tour Heath was arguably the most successful junior tennis coach in the United States over the past decade. Every single one of Heath’s private students that Heath Waters has ever coached privately for more than 24 months has achieved no less than a top 25 ranking in the United States national rankings. Matter of fact all achieved a top 10 ranking in the United States except one player who was top 25. Between 1996-2001 Heath’s junior students won over 20 gold balls (U.S. National Titles) and 20 International and National titles above and beyond that. Every student that Heath Waters has ever coached privately for more than 24 months has gone on to play professional tennis without exception. Every one of these students achieved a professional ranking with the exception of one player who changed career paths. The highest achieved professional ranking of Heath’s junior students to date so far is 39 in the world achieved by Ashley Harkleroad on the WTA Tour (Heath began coaching Ashley at 8 years old).
Heath Waters created the world-renowned player development system known as The ACE Progressive Player Development System in the early ’90s. The system is a progressive player development system that continues to evolve as the great sport of tennis evolves each year.
