My Favorite sports event/memory/moment is… winning the American Athletic Conference (AAC) tournament in 2018 while I was at Tulane. In this moment I truly understood that tennis, while it is mainly an individual sport, can be a team sport as well. It also taught me that all those long hours on court, early morning gym sessions and countless sprints were worth the blood, sweat and tears that I put into the sport. There is truly no better feeling than celebrating a major accomplishment with friends/teammates that all share the same passion.
