Player Seeking Sponsorship - Sofia Shapatava


Sofia Shapatava

I have been playing tennis since I was 10 years old, so 21 years now. I started travelling to tournaments from the age of 18, but really full time from age of 20. My career has been up and down, since I never had a coach with me, and Georgia is not the best place to try to be a professional tennis player. I have therefore struggled a lot with injuries due to lack of knowledge.
