"I have been been teaching MTM since 1996 where my extensive coaching experience in Serbia took juniors as young as nine years old to ATP and WTA tour standards." 


Predrag has achieved incredible results with all level players, but he loves teaching ages 6 to 14 to “Play Like the Pros“ from the start. "My program has produced ITF top ranked juniors who are nationally ranked ATP and now play future tournaments as well as ATP points after coaching them. I have been playing tennis for 25 years and coaching over 17 years. I started playing tennis with my brother when I was 9 years old. I took part in many national and international (ITF) tennis competitions. I have been coaching from very young children to older people. Tennis is not just a game for me it is a lifestyle.  When I came across with Oscar Wegner’s method I recognized immediately its simplicity and greatness”.


Predrag was born in Belgrade in 1966.  During his career he has worked in several clubs in Serbia and abroad: Devils  Tennis Club Belgrade, Belgrade-Prestige Tennis Club, Tennis Club Dril-Belgrade, Mars and Tennis Club-coordinates of Malta, Winer-Belgrade Tennis Club, Ferny Hills Tennis Club Brisbane Australia, Palos Tennis Club Melbourne Australia.


One of the highlights and best results of his career includes eight years working with Matthew Asiak from Malta. Under Predrag’s leadership, Matthew became a champion of Malta, winner of the ITF tournament to 18g, semi-finalists and finalists in several tournaments in the same category.  He was also second in Europe to 14 years. In 2006 Matthew won the tournament in Malta, then the singles semifinals and doubles finals in 2006 in Limassol (Cyprus) and doubles finals in 2007 in Botstajnu (Switzerland). In 2006 he started as a junior and that same year he finished as the world junior 209.


He trained Brenda Galea from Malta, the current champion to 14 and 16 and the second on the list Alexia Valencia. Besides these, he has also worked with several players like Viktor Troicki, Nikola Ciric, Milan Pokrajac, Minja Maksimovic, Sanja Todorovic and Renata Ljukovčan.


Pedja said: "At first I used the traditional method of working with players and beginners, but 12 years ago moved to the modern methodology of Oscar Wegnar with whom I got MTM Pro Certification (Modern Tennis Methodology). This change has brought excellent results in dealing with all categories of players.”


He has judged at the state championships, satellites, futures, and Davis Cup Yugoslavia, Portugal and Malta.
