My favorite sports event/memory/moment is… to be able to share the court with so many top players in the sport at the ATP 1000 Shanghai Rolex Masters. I have been very fortunate to learn firsthand from the players behind the scenes and learn some of the secrets while helping them in their warm ups and match preparations.
