Aged 4 I was just getting used to swinging a racket.

My love for tennis started at the young age of 3. My parents used to take me every weekend for lessons at the Harbour Club. This was where I quickly developed a keen skill and an ever growing passion for the sport. My weekends spent there are what fuelled my dream of being a professional tennis player.

Growing up I dedicated all the time that I could to playing tennis, often (unlawfully) taking time off school in order to go play. After completing my GCSE's with a surprising amount of A's, I left school to train full time at Sutton Professional Tennis Academy in south London.

Me with my coach, Pepe Imaz and fellow player Carlos Gomez.

At the age of 18 I decided to make the move to Marbella, Spain. I felt this was where I could further develop my career and not only to grow as a tennis player but also a person. The warm climate and outdoors lifestyle made it the ideal choice. I had a tricky initial settling in period, but soon after I quickly saw huge improvements in my tennis.

I'm currently training at the Puente Romano Tennis Club with my coach, Pepe Imaz, and a great group of players. I can safely say I made the right choice of moving here as I have mad vast improvements in all areas of my game and am playing the best tennis of my life at the moment.

On court with Genie Bouchard.

In February of 2014 I was called up to travel with Eugenie Bouchard. We spent seven weeks together playing tournaments and training. In those weeks my role was to be a travelling coach and hitter, her head coach Nick Saviano wasn't able to travel much so I would be there to help Genie and to pass on messages from Nick. I very much enjoyed my time touring with Bouchard but at the end I felt I still had more tennis to play myself. So shortly after I returned to competitive training.

Since then, I have had the pleasure of being practice partner for, Paul Ormaechea (Top 80 WTA) Jurgen Melzer (Top 20 ATP) and Feliciano Lopez (Top 20ATP).
