  • The Road to National Champion
    June 07, 2018
    Tennis has been a part of my life before I was even born. My parents met playing tennis, my aunts and uncles play tennis, my cousins play tennis, etc. So naturally at the age of four, I picked up a racket and began my almost 18-year long tennis career. Tennis is a very mental sport, so playing tournaments growing up was not easy due to the tremendous pressure and loneliness you can feel. When you are a tennis player, you don’t ever really feel like a part of a team; it is just you and your thoughts on a big tennis court. I enjoyed playing for the most part, but I never felt satisfied with my level of play, and sometimes it felt as though I shed more tears of sadness than tears of joy.
