Wheelchair tennis is about your control over the wheelchair, your strokes, and the psychological battle against your opponent…There’s just so much you have to do, and it’s a very meaningful experience.

Strong points

“To beat larger foreign players who hit really hard, I have to just run around as much as I can and return the ball to their side of the court. Watch as we move our chairs freely around the court, picking up shots and winning points.”
