        2008年初,一位年轻的中国网球教练被邀请加入梅赛德斯-奔驰“明日之星”青少年网球“高能”项目的教练队伍,他的名字叫“刘硕”(Robert)。刘硕与“明日之星”的总教头杰夫•贝勒普(Jeff Bearup)一道将国际上先进的青少年网球教学理念带给了首届“明日之星”的学员。
刘硕教练在“明日之星”中出色的教学工作也引起了中国网协的注意,一年后他就受邀成为了中国青少年网球国家队的教练。在随后的日子里,刘硕教练一直保持着与贝勒普教练以及“明日之星”项目的联系,积极投身到中国青少年网球之星的培养中去。
        后来,刘硕教练又加入了中国网球国家队,并成为了女网新星张帅的主管教练。在师从刘硕后,张帅还来到了波士顿进行特训,接受贝勒普教练的指导。
        11月7日,在经历了“珠海WTA超级精英赛”的魔幻一周后,张帅也来到了自己职业生涯至今为止的最高世界排名——第24位。此时的刘硕就陪在张帅身边,与她共同享受成功的喜悦;而一直身居幕后的贝勒普教练同样感到欣喜。
        在即将开启新一年“明日之星”项目之际,我们对刘硕教练致以最真挚的祝贺和感谢,感谢他对中国网球所作出的贡献,并希望他能带着新晋中国女网“一姐”张帅共同为“明日之星”添光彩!


Nine years ago in early 2008 a young Chinese coach was invited to join “SFS” international coach Jeff Bearup as the “SFS” Chinese head coach to launch the Mercedes-Benz “Swing for the Stars” High Performance Junior Tennis Program. His name was Liu Shuo (Robert). Robert formed a strong bond with Coach Bearup and together did a terrific job introducing the most advanced international high performance junior tennis concepts to the first group of “SFS” players.
Coach Liu’s hard work with “Swing for the Stars” did not go unnoticed by the China Tennis Association and one year later he was invited to become a China National Junior Team coach. Robert continued his communication with Coach Bearup & the “SFS” team from afar as he greatly contributed to the success of China’s younger generation of tennis stars.
After joining the China National Tennis Team staff, Robert was assigned to become the lead coach for one of China’s rising stars Zhang Shuai. Included in his coaching program of Zhang were trips to see Coach Bearup in Boston where Zhang engaged in training under the watchful eyes of Coach Bearup & Coach Liu.
Fast forward now to November 7th, after a fantastic performance at the WTA Elite Trophy Zhuhai, Zhang Shuai achieved her highest WTA ranking ever at World #24. Alongside Zhang Shuai sharing this great accomplishment is Coach Liu Shuo and in the background smiling is Coach Jeff Bearup.
So as we conclude another fantastic year of Mercedes-Benz “Swing for the Stars”, we offer our congratulations and our thanks to Coach Liu Shuo for his contributions to our program & China Tennis and encourage him to continue to “Swing for the Stars” with China’s #1 tennis star Zhang Shuai!
