Interview with juan carlos ferrero
Former #1 in the world explains why Dragonet is a revolution in tennis
Juan Carlos Ferrero, former world number one and winner of Roland Garros in 2003, talks about his experience with the Dragonet tennis training machine.
Juan Carlos’ experience as a player and coach is unquestionable, and the first approach with Dragonet was surprising for him. Ferrero took very little time to understand the machine’s potential and is already thinking about how to exploit it for his academy, one of the most prestigious in the world. In his plans, Dragonet will also be useful for Carlos Alcaraz, a new Spanish tennis star and already a top player at his Equelite Academy.
What is Dragonet?
CONTINUOUS LOOP TRAINING MACHINE
POSSIBILITY TO TRAIN
ON ALL SURFACES
POSSIBILITY TO TRAIN
IN A SMALL SPACE
The collection frame can be assembled and disassembled without the use of any tools, while the trolley system makes it easy to moving the machine. Dragonet adapts to each player’s needs and space.
REVERSE | MIDDLE | STRAIGHT
KIND OF HIT
From the touchscreen display it is possible to set the direction of the stroke: forehand, backhand or middle. These directions can be set individually (e.g., backhand only) or alternately, with any kind of relationship between the two strokes. (e.g. two forehands, three backhands).
SMASH | VOLLEY | FOREHAND/BACKHAND
Dragonet Professional automatically adjusts, depending on the type of ball, the launch angle to always have an optimal trajectory height. In an automatic way it will therefore be possible to train the volley. In addition, thanks to a support placed under the rebound pad, it is also possible to hit the smash or bandeja.
SELECT THE SPIN
With Dragonet you have the ability to adjust the amount of spin for your own personalized training. From the display or the specific knob you can choose from 10 different levels of adjustment starting from a flat ball with no spin to an aggressive topspin, with a very difficult to control ball spin.
10 LEVELS OF DISTANCE
With Dragonet, it is possible to customize the playing distance, thus making the machine perfect for use in previously unused spaces-from the carport to the garden!
TRAINING INTENSITY ADJUSTMENT
The throwing frequency is fully customizable. Thanks to a fine tuning of 0.2 seconds one can both focus on the purely technical aspect but also, thanks to the possibility of slowing down the pace between balls, work on the athletic aspect, it is then possible to supplement the training with tools such as proprioceptive platforms, stepladder and cones.

Who came up with it.
Giuseppe Spedaliere’s passion for tennis mixed with his son Alessandro attitude for computer science and programming are the fertile ground from which Dragonet revolutionary idea grew.
Giuseppe has always been passionate about tennis, his favorite hobby, but unfortunately years of incorrect practice of the one handed backhand led him to a bad elbow injury. It’s from such sad situation that the core idea came to his mind.
Fully conscious of his son’s passion and in-depth knowledge of computer science and programming, Giuseppe asked Alessandro the most simple and yet smart question: was it possible for him to design an improved version of the traditional “ball machine”? One that needed no court to be used. One that could be used to train everywhere and could be kept in their garage. A tool to work with any time he could in order to finally master that backhand technique.
That’s where Dragonet came from! A one of a kind machine, ready to revolutionize the very idea of tennis training.
Dragonet is a patented product in accordance with United States and European Community’s regulations and directives.
