Karolina Jagieniak is a former tennis superstar and is currently one of the most sought-after tennis coaches in the L.A. area.

Jagieniak started playing tennis at the age of 6 and quickly became one of the top junior tennis players in the world. At 14, she won the Orange Bowl in Miami, defeating both Amelie Mauresmo and Anna Kournikova. She was also a two-time French Junior Champion, plus a World Champion with the French National team. At the young age of 16, she turned pro and played professionally for seven years. She competed in high-profile tournaments such as Roland Garros, Wimbledon, the US Open and the Australian Open, defeating some of the most well-known tennis players in the world.

At 22, Jagieniak postponed her tennis career to pursue an Ivy League education at the University of Pennsylvania. Upon graduating, she moved to L.A. to teach high-level tennis in Beverly Hills and quickly became a favorite for Hollywood celebrities and L.A.’s elite, which has led to her coaching all over the world. Her extraordinary coaching skills stem from her tennis expertise and her unique ability to relate to young talents.

Just last month, she returned to the US Open, no longer as a player, but as a coach to some of the most talented juniors in the world.
