Who is Adrin Himmelheber?
While growing up Adrin worked with the likes of George MacCall (U.S. Davis Cup Captain) and Pancho Gonzales (Former World #1, U.S. Open Champion) on the Vegas Strip. Later as an accomplished junior he worked extensively with Pat Dupre (Stanford All American, Wimbledon Semi-Finalist) along with attending Rick Macci and Nick Bolletierri Tennis Academy. Adrin received a scholarship to UNLV and played briefly on the tennis team after signing a record deal at 19 years old to pursue a music career. Adrin rekindled his passion for tennis after a few years and began competing again and decided to turn pro. He credits ATP Tour coach Sam Aparicio his long time coach for helping him develop into a professional tennis player. In the summer of 2005 Adrin moved to Spain and was accepted by the Federacion Real de Madrid to pursue a professional tennis career. While in Spain Adrin trained with world class Spanish tennis coaches including Feliciano Lopez Sr. as well as Francisco “Pato” Clavet. During that summer he was a hitting/training partner to Nicholas Massu (2005 Olympic Gold Medalist Singles and Doubles) along with other highly world ranked tennis players. After spending one of the most exciting and productive training summers of his life Adrin was sidelined with a career ending ACL knee injury. After almost 2 years of physical therapy Adrin decided to pursue a full time coaching career and has worked with players of all levels including world ranked professionals and Grand Slam semi finalists. Adrin occasionally plays Pro Ams and Prize money invitationals but has focused on sharing his world class experience with everyone he encounters on a tennis court. Adrin is an honored member of the United States Professional Tennis Association and is on the USPTA Nevada Board of Directors. He is also a certified professional 1 through the organization which is in the top 10 percentile of all members. In 2013 Adrin received the USPTA Star Award for Intermountain Division. The award reflects outstanding hard work with the community and for being a positive ambassador of the game.
