I first picked up a racket when I was 10 and was fortunate to be trained by a top coach from the age of 11 – Shane Theobald. During this period, we worked hard on my technique which has stood me in good sted ever since. I then spent the next few years working with Ali Filmer at the Bromley Tennis Academy, before going to the Team Bath Academy (Bath University), where I worked with Rob Morgan.
It is now the end of my first year with the Universty of Denver Pioneers and things have gone well. My doubles win/loss ratio, playing at 1st pair with Jesse Ruder-Hook, was 11-3 and my singles ratio, playing at 2, was 13-8. Our coaches, Ricardo Rudio and Drew Ederly, have enormous experience and are the perfect team to support the Pioneers going forward.
I am now preparing for a Summer of tennis. Lots of British Tours and perhaps an ITF Futures event in Europe should set me up nicely for another year with The Pioneers. I can’t wait!
