BEHIND THE RACQUET​

I started playing tennis at the age of 5 in a little village called Brooke, which had two hard courts. I seemed to take to tennis really quickly and enjoyed the sport from the get go. Ever since I have been motivated and driven to compete at the highest level.

 

I had a successful junior career and enjoyed competing all around Europe in Germany, Portugal, and France to name a few.

Relatively early on, I made the decision to go down the American college tennis route, instead of staying and competing in England. This has taught me the value of teamwork and persistence to reach a common goal. It has given me a solid foundation to start my career in tennis with the rigorous regime of training, physical work and constant matches throughout our season.

 

It has been great preparation for what is to come. Playing NCAA college tennis for Davenport has given me the chance to play in multiple states across the US and has given me some incredible opportunities.

In July 2018, I had my first opportunity to be a practice partner at Wimbledon. I had the chance to hit with the best players in the world, both on the ATP and WTA tours. This gave me the chance to learn from the very best and got a taste for what life is like at the top of the game. And it was good...
