Horacio turned pro at the age of 19 and competed for four years on the pro tour, spending five months of every year living and competing in Europe and the other seven months in South America.


In 1990 Horacio moved to the US to coach at the Nick Bolletieri Tennis Academy in Florida. While at Bolletieri’s, Horacio was a travelling coach and sparring partner for some of the academy’s top players.


In 1992 Horacio moved to California where he joined Jeff Arons at EPATT (East Palo Alto Tennis and Tutoring program), a game-changing youth development program, combining his passion for tennis with education.


Horacio came back to coaching pro players when he was asked to coach Chile’s Davis Cup team. During Horacio’s team coaching tenure, Chile defeated Australia, Canada, Austria, Pakistan, and Slovakia. Chile also competed against the U.S., Croatia and Russia.


As a private coach, Horacio has trained multiple ranked players including, Nicolas Massu, a two-time Olympic gold medalist and former #9 ranked player in the world; and Fernando Gonzalez, Silver Medal winner at the Beijing Olympics, Wimbledon contender, and former #5 ranked player.


Since Fernando’s retirement, Horacio returned to coaching local Juniors such as, Jamin and Andrew Ball, James Pade, Cici Bellis, Michaela Gordon, Dominic Schaeffer, and Ashley Vielma, and believes that even in his next life he will always have a racket by his side.


Horacio and Anne, parents of three boys, built Broadway Tennis Center to give access without membership and an opportunity to experience the camaraderie, competition, and healthy lifestyle they enjoyed as ranked players.


Anne Matta

Anne attended a friend’s birthday party on a tennis court at age nine and was hooked. She worked her way up through the Junior level and became a three-time All-American, MVP at the University of Texas, and ranked #1 in NCAA singles.


After college, Anne turned pro and was ranked in the Top 100 in the World, competing at Wimbledon, The French Open, The Australian Open and the U.S. Open. Playing at International tournaments in Japan, Singapore, Taiwan, New Zealand, Australia, Germany, Italy, France, England, Luxemburg, Belgium, Spain, Portugal, South Africa, and Brazil provided the opportunity to see the World and build lifetime friendships.


The most fun she had playing major tournaments was having a set point against Martina Navratilova in the quarterfinals of the Canadian Open, and then losing and becoming friends with her after the match. Anne feels the best things about tennis are the camaraderie and connections you make along with the humility you learn from tough losses and the independence accrued from striving towards personal goals.
