Random things about me (hobbies, occupation, tennis history, favorite band, etc.):
I'm a solid 4.0 player with a passion for tennis and a drive to improve whenever I can. My strokes are pretty consistent and I hit with good control and pace on my shots. I've played doubles on my high school team for three straight years though I prefer to play singles when given the choice. Next year I will be an incoming freshmen in college and plan to play club tennis for my school. If you live in the north suburbs and want to hit add me!
Favorite pro tennis player(s):
James Blake is my all time favorite professional player because I like his aggressive style of play and admire his ability to overcome adversity.
