us a little bit about yourself, for example: What do you do? Where did you grow
up? What are your hobbies (besides tennis)? (Feel free to share any interesting
details about your life.)
from Long Island, New York originally. I moved out to Cleveland to attend
Case Western Reserve University. I stayed around after graduating and
really love Cleveland and what is has to offer. Besides tennis, I enjoy
working out at CrossFit CLE, climbing at Cleveland Rock Gym, and enjoying
to get in 1-2 matches per week. Availability waivers though! So I
play more when I have more time.
do you like most about the league?
the competition is great. Most players are respectful, flexible, and fun
to play against.
us about your most memorable match(es)
a pretty epic match against Paolo Argentieri. We have similar games, so
we have very close matches and points. Our match turned into a really
tight three-set slog in hot and tiring conditions. That was my type of
competitive and fun match.
are your favorite rivals in the league? Why?
favorite player to play against is Louis Burnoski. He has an unusual game
that is really fun to play against. I have been doing better and better
against him. One day I hope to actually win a match!
you have any other interesting comments about your experiences with the league?
just been a very flexible and fun league! It's been around 8 years since
I was playing tennis regularly, so it's been an enjoyable and competitive way
to get back into it.
did you get started playing tennis?
mom taught me and then took lessons growing up before blossoming into a
slightly above-average high school player!
level player are you? (NTRP rating)
do you love about tennis?
mental struggle. I struggle with the inner game of tennis, but have
learned to appreciate this inner game and to embrace this challenge.
