Mariam is passionate about tennis and extremely committed to becoming the best player she can be. Mariam trains 3 days a week at Uxbridge Tennis with former national coach Stuart Wilkinson. She was Novice Player of the Year in 2021 and continues to show strong commitment to developing her game. She has competed in her first 5 overseas tournaments and has a world ranking of 119. I look forward to seeing her further develop over the coming months under the guidance of a committed coach in combination with the desire and passion to improve her game.
