I am a dedicated athlete with a diverse background in sports, originally hailing from Club de Tenis Aviles in Spain. My journey began as a multi-sport athlete, excelling in both soccer and tennis. My dedication and hard work led to a remarkable achievement of reaching the top 100 in Spain’s tennis rankings.

Driven by my passion for tennis and a desire for academic excellence, I made the life-changing decision to relocate to the United States to pursue a college education. This bold move enabled me to continue my tennis journey while also laying a strong foundation for my academic and personal growth.

My experiences in Spain and the US have instilled in me a strong work ethic, discipline, and a competitive spirit. They have also fostered a deep love for the sport and a commitment to achieving excellence, both on and off the court.

Yago is also quite a tennis player, and he is a pleasure to hit with. He knows exactly how to get the best out of my game on the court, something many pros much older than he have failed at. In short, this young man is rare combina on of decorum and intelligence with a drive that reminds me of myself when I was his age.
