MY JOURNEY

When I was just 7 years old, my journey in the world of tennis began at the Boys and Girls Club in Atlanta. It all started with a simple invitation from a counselor, asking if anyone wanted to join the tennis program. Without hesitation, I eagerly raised my hand. Little did I know at that time how significant this decision would be for me. Every Friday, I embarked on a path of growth and development as I honed my skills on the court. My coach provided constant encouragement and praise, which fueled my passion for the sport.

Recognizing my potential, my mother made a conscious decision to enroll me in a more intensive training program at Washington Park Tennis Center. By the age of 8, I found myself competing in USTA matches and tournaments with great enthusiasm. As time went on, I steadily climbed through the ranks and participated in national-level competitions. With each challenge faced and overcome, I pushed myself further to reach new heights in the world of tennis.

I found myself dedicating countless hours to practice and training, sacrificing playdates and social outings for the sake of my passion. The countless hours spent on the court paid off, as I started to see improvements in my game and in my ranking.

As I progressed in my tennis journey, I faced many challenges and setbacks. There were times when I lost matches, struggled with injuries, and doubted my abilities. But these obstacles only fueled my determination to work harder and become better. I learned to bounce back from defeat, searching for the lessons hidden within each loss.

The tennis community became my second family. I formed friendships with fellow players, coaches, and mentors, all of whom pushed me to push myself. They offered guidance, support, and a shoulder to lean on during tough times. Together, we celebrated victories and endured losses, forming an unbreakable bond.

Playing tennis also allowed me to travel and compete in various parts of the country. I had the opportunity to visit new places, experience different cultures, and forge connections with people from all walks of life. These experiences broadened my horizons and enriched my understanding of the world.

As I look back on my tennis journey, I am grateful for the opportunities it has afforded me. Tennis has taught me many invaluable life lessons - perseverance, resilience, discipline, and the importance of hard work. It has molded me into a determined and focused individual, capable of tackling challenges head-on.

Although my competitive tennis career has come to a close, my enduring enthusiasm for the sport persists. I find great fulfillment in imparting the knowledge and skills of tennis to others and fostering a sense of unity within the tennis community. Tennis has left an indelible mark on my life, molding me into the individual I am today.

JIM COURIER

"Skill and raw athleticism are mere commodities at this level. What gets people to the big leagues is persistence, focus, professionalism, and a good head on one’s shoulders. Nathan possesses all those qualities."

MANNY DIAZ

"Nathan has achieved all of his success, to this point in his life, without the benefit of financial support from his family. Nathan has a passion for the game and has had to be creative and resourceful in order to compete at the highest level. He is no stranger to hardship or hard work."

ERIC BUTORAC

"His big serve, explosive movement, and soft hands are matched by his hard work and desire to reach the next level. I look forward to following him for years to come."
