Interview

 

What makes you different ?

While a large number of tennis players of my age have chosen to be educated remotely in order to be able to train twice a day, I decided to stay in school normally, not having the time to train more than 3 times a week, and so I am proud to have reached my current level but I know that once in the USA I will still be able to progress quickly given the intensity of the training !

Why do you want to compete in college ?

I love tennis but I know I have small chances to make career as a pro and so it is very important for me to get a degree and to become English fluent in order to maximize my job opportunities in the future. Thanks to the U.S College system I will be able to continue and enjoy playing tennis at the highest level while preparing my future professional career.

Tennis and Life goals ?

If you ask me how I see myself in 10 years, I will probably answer that I want to be a rich businessman, able to play tennis at the highest possible level with my friends I would have met in the U.S College system and ready to build my own family !

I know that once in the USA I will still be able to progress quickly given the intensity of the training !
