David Gorrez Tennis Coach Director , Sport Specific (Thailand)
I have had the distinct pleasure of working with Chanchai between tournaments in Thailand, and I will be the first to say that his dedication to, and focus on honing his craft is unparalleled, whether on the court, on the track, or in the gym. This, in no small part, is why we decided to sponsor him. As a sponsored athlete, he has enthusiastically fulfilled all his obligations in a timely manner beyond what we have required of him, and our brand is strengthened by our association. Potential sponsors will be hard-put to find a better player with whom to share the journey.
