What I love about tennis:

When I was born my father gave me the nickname 'tennis' because of his love for playing tennis which was passed onto me through his coaching. Tennis is a sport which has always been in my blood. Tennis is a fun sport which requires players to have a high concentration and also be able to remain calm. I love the patience required to watch and wait for the ball to bounce and then use your own talent to return the shot and target your opponents weakness to win the match. 

Tennis has given me so much more than only playing tennis.
