I first met Francisco as a teenager when he was a student at the Nick Bollettieri Tennis Academy where he became an accomplished player. It was when he determined that he would pursue a career in coaching tennis, however, that his unique talents and skills really blossomed. Mr. Montoya quickly became one of my top coaches at the NBTA. He worked with some of the top players that we created and he made significant contributions in their development.

Founder & CEO of IMG Tennis Academy


I have been lucky enough to have had Francisco in my life since I was 10 years old. Francisco is so much more than a tennis coach to me. He instilled my love for tennis, as he has done to so many others. The effort that Francisco puts into his insanely long and tiring days is due to his passion for the game and its people.

Former No.1 player from UVA


Back in 1999, Francisco awarded me with a two week scholarship at the Nick Bollettieri Tennis Academy (now IMG) and that openen my international tennis experience. Throughout the years, I joined his ITF teams in South America and Europe building a long lasting friendship that I truly value and respect.

Francisco combines being an intense coach and a caring person. He makes us work very hard during practices and is also social and involved off the court. Because of this, we see him as more than just a tennis coach and mentor. Francisco is respected because he can motivate players to work hard, require their best at each practice, and relate to players on a personal level. I have been very fortunate to work with him for the past five years.

Junior Player


During my years as the Junior Player Development leader of USTA New England, Francisco’s official initiative of online academic curriculums provided opportunities to some of our best prospects of the New England section to increase their time commitment to elevate their tennis level. This in turn translated into players joining some of the best collegiate academic and athletic programs in the country as well as competing on the professional circuit.

USPTA Master Pro


Francisco shaped me into the tennis player and person that I am today. He has been my tennis coach, mentor and friend ever since I was 8 years old. Through his guidance, encouragement, trust and the occasional constructive criticism, I was able to fulfill my dream of playing tennis at one of the top collegiate tennis schools in the nation, Northwestern University, and pursue a professional tennis career for a couple years following.

Former No.1 player from Northwestern University


Francisco is one of the best coaches nationwide. Players become better more disciplined technicians and tacticians when working with him and grow to reach their full potential under his tutelage. If your player has big dreams of playing at the collegiate or pro level, you are in the best hands.

Francisco Montoya is one of the best coaches I have had the pleasure of spending a lot of time with both on and off the court. His high character shines through, he coaches character first and tennis second! He has rgeat communication skills and easily builds great relationships built on trust and mutual respect with his players, fellow coaches and parents. Francisco is a life long learner and is always exploring ways to upgrade his coaching skills, which is a hallmark of a terrific coach!!

US Davis Cup Captain


I have known Francisco for over 20 years as a colleague but more important as a friend. He has great character and kind heart. As a professional, I rate him among the best developmental coaches in the world. Francisco’s passion, knowledge, and ability to inspire people creates the best possible enviroment for everyone at every level of tennis.

JTCC Senior Director


Francisco is one of the most caring and knowledgeable coaches I have ever worked with. His passion and the effort he puts into his coaching daily is inspiring. Everybody in the tennis community throughout New England knows of his tremendous reputation. His reputation is respected throughout the country and the international tennis community. I am lucky enough to have gotten to train with him during my college career. I was coming back from a serious knee injury when I first met Fransisco and he helped to bring my game to a higher level I could even imagine. Forever grateful for him.

WTA Player



One of the attributes that I admire most about Francisco is his humbleness. His motivation in helping students whether it be teaching exchange students how to speak English, arranging host families, participating in community service events, giving a ride or pep talk whenever needed is unmatched. He is always very quiet about all the extra things he does, never looking for any praise or approval. He is truly an amazing individual.
