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.
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.
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).
