In the beginning
Do you remember your first and most enduring childhood dream?
Since the age of 4, mine was to become a professional tennis player and to win Wimbledon.
In 2019, following nearly 5 years of struggle with a chronic neurological pain condition in my right leg, my dream became a reality. Albeit in a most unexpected way.
From misadventure to adventure
In 2014, while serving in the British Army, I was injured and lost the ability to play able-bodied sports. Three years later, I took up wheelchair tennis and represented the UK at the Invictus Games in Toronto, winning a bronze medal in the doubles event.
Since then, I:
- Was selected for the Paralympic Inspiration Programme
- Have competed on the UNIQLO Wheelchair Tennis Pro Circuit
- Made my debut for Great Britain at the 2019 BNP Paribas World Team Cup
- Won my first singles title and gained a top 50 world singles ranking
My sights are now firmly set on developing my game further while gunning for the 2020 Tokyo Paralympics.
