Clelia Melena

Switzerland  standard Ambassador 


My name is Clelia Melena, I am 32 years old and I have played tennis since I was 5 years old. I loved tennis from the first moment I had a racket in my hand, and since then I could never live without it. 

Since I was a little girl I loved competing against other girls, which motivated me to start practicing hard and playing tournaments right from the beginning. Living close to Italy and having a double passport (Swiss and Italian) gave me the opportunity to play a lot also abroad. Having an international experience and speaking French, Italian, English (all three fluently), and German (medium-level) have opened many doors for my coaching career. I have learned how to manage different personalities with a variety of cultural backgrounds. 

JUNIOR RESULT: I have won Italian team competition U12, U14, and U16. I have also represented Italy in the European Championships U14.

PROFESSIONAL RESULT: I have played for Ceriano Laghetto team (Italy) in the best liege (A1). My best rankings have been: in Switzerland N1(9), in WTA ranking 670 in single and 598 in double.

PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCES: I have been the head coach in Carona for the past 4 years, while also doing private lessons in Les Amis in Lugano. Prior to my current position, I have worked as a head coach in Collina d’oro in Lugano for 2 years and as an assistant coach with Roy Emerson in Gstaad, Switzerland.
