Unstoppable 9-Yr-Old Tennis Prodigy!



When the world’s best tennis players take the court in New York for the US Open, 9-year-old Gabby Price will be watching closely — because this tennis phenom may be be the next great American champion.

The episode reveals Gabby’s incredible talent and adorable charisma, giving viewers a rare window into the makings of true greatness.

  • She's already developed a grunt for every time of shot….that's really irritating. And also, don't cheer on a player's unforced error

  • Roger Federer is greatest of all time… and he "sounds" once in a blue moon while serving…. Why don't people learn from him?

    This Monica Seles, Sharapova ruined the tennis… Irritating grunting.

  • how about teaching youngest player not to scream at each shots… Women tennis has become a very distracting and annoying game to watch.

  • Or they can do both? i doubt he never gives her support. Kids that aspire to be great athletes cant just be supported they typically need to be coached at home and on the field. If you baby a child too much thats what they become, if you instill nothing but negative energy into a kid, thats what they become its balance game.

  • Although i do agree with your comment, I think the dad has muscle memory in mind. If he pushes his child to correct her mistakes, her body will memorize the technique and maybe won't make the mistake next time.

  • It's such a shame about that STUPID COMPLETELY UNNECESSARY GRUNTING.

  • I feel bad for her to be completely honest like yeah sure she looks like she is enjoying it but don't you think she should be having a childhood?

  • size of the racquet doesnt affect her because itll be a very light weight racquet

  • He is criticizing her because in the end he knows it will make her better. You can't just say "YOU'RE DOING GREAT!" even when you lose a point unless she almost wins and tries her complete best. It's constructive criticism that makes you the best.

  • What a fantastic player! Some simple breathing techniques however, would get rid of the ridiculous screaming and grunting that she has already, seen mostly in female players. Dad and Mom are a tennis version of Teresa and Juicy Joe Guidice! Good luck to this little girl, we may see her on the ATP 8-10 years from now.

  • When Rick said she should be mad after losing a point, that kinda made me second guess his coaching. You should never show your anger, it makes winning so much easier for the opponent

  • I hope Gabby's parents don't neglect to teach her about humility. Did you catch what Gabby said about her father's strictness? She said, "Sometimes he's strict because he wants the best for me, he said." (At 6:30.) I wonder what SHE thinks.

    Zacki Inu March 21, 2020 11:46 am Reply
  • She could hit 14 years old and tell dad to forget it. That is why I hate the promotion of Prodigies. Even Rick says they won't know how it turns out for 7 to 8 years, Parents first need to be parents, leave coaches to coach. Encourage, support and love. Kids who truly want to be great will push themselves, they don't need parents doing it for them. Parents who push will find the child will push back at 14, 17 or 20. Read Andre Agassi's book,a look inside a tennis parent/child relationships.

  • her dad was tennis player. its pretty obvious that he was the one who got her started on this. i don't think shes a prodigy. just a good player who's been pushed by her father

  • there you have it ,i see most of you want her pampered and not pushed this is why most people are not great at any thing .The dad was great michael jackson was pushed williams sisters were pushed all great human beings at what they did or does ,only a loser won't want the dad to say anything

    Troy B March 21, 2020 11:46 am Reply
  • yes you have to push the child, if you dont push the child it shows her that the parents dont care about her interest, but there is a limit. you still have to show the child unconditional love, even if she loses you have to be loving to her. both pushing to hard which shows conditional love and not pushing at all is bad, so they have to find the right balance
