When did you start playing tennis?   I started playing tennis 2012 when I was
eight years old.

I started playing tennis at three years old.

Most embarrassing tennis moment? My most embarrassing tennis moment was when I drank a lot of Gatorade during a change-over, and then I burped really loudly right when my opponent was walking by me. Not answered.
What's in your tennis bag?  I have 2 Yonex racquets, a whole roll of overgrips, a spare change of clothes and shoes, deodorant, jump rope, stretch rope, towel, hats and bandanas, suncreen and bugspray, 6 tennis balls for warmup, spare dampeners, and a necklace of Jesus
for good luck.

Rackets, Towels, Solinco string, stencil, fitness bands, grips, extra clothes, and a lucky Hot Wheels car my favorite- 918 Porsche Spider) 

What's your favorite food?  My favorite food is orange chicken at Panda Express. Steak!
Favorite TV show?  My favorite TV show is Family Guy. Friends
If I have a downtime I'm usually...  Playing on my phone, sleeping, or playing tennis. Stringing rackets, drawing, playing FIFA, or sleeping.
A thing you can't live without ...

I can't live without playing tennis because it keeps me on my feet and I love every second of it.
