Later on I transitioned into the u18 ITF tour but when I turned 16 I took a break when my father passed away, and really took my time to decide in which direction I wanted to go with my tennis. I decided I wanted to give it a go and I started playing mostly ITF futures event, and got my first points at 16 years old.
My mother is French so I studied at a french school in London, which I remained focused on while I was training and competing. When I graduated, I had the opportunity with help from a sponsor to move to Barcelona and train at 4slam academy, training with some of the best coaches and players in the world. I lived and trained with players like Karen Khachanov and Andrey Rublev and it really brought my game forward.
