Podcast with Karue Sell

If you watch tennis on YouTube, I’m sure you have come across Karue Sell and My Tennis HQ. On his channel, he regularly shares coaching “NTRP 4.5, now what?” where he coaches fellow YouTuber Winston Du to get to the next level in tennis.

I have been a follower of his channel for a while and thought it would be interesting to sit down and talk about his career in tennis and coaching, as well as exchange some experiences about creating content on YouTube.

Karue seems like a great guy, and we had a fun conversation. I hope that comes across also when listening to it. I am trying to step up the Tennisnerd podcast game and if you like to listen to the stuff I do, please consider subscribing to the channel/podcast and tell other tennis fans about it. I haven’t found any financial incentive in doing a podcast, so every little piece of love and feedback helps!
