What makes you different?

Even when I am in my worst days and as much as things go wrong, I practice with head up. And I am also a very competitive person.

Why do you want to compete in college?

I want to compete in college, because it is the only way to take a degree and continue to practice tennis at a high level. On the other hand, I am excited about the possibility of being part of a team and compete as a team.

College Goals?

I would like to take the opportunity of tennis. And when I finished my degree, I want to try to get into the professional circuit. If for any reason, this doesn’t work out, I have a degree to move on with my plan B.
