Winning nationals–that’s challenging to do for anyone. At 25-years-old, practicing and competing in fewer tournaments than in one’s junior tennis prime, let alone on tennis’ naturally quirky surface it is that much more of a daunting task. Recently, I was able to accomplish that feat and am very proud of it.
