Aims & Goals

I want to play tennis to the best of my ability and climb the rankings to as high as my ability allows. When I stop playing professionally I want to look back on my time with no regrets and have left everything out on the court.

Playing experience:

Tennis is such a complex game with so many different game styles and techniques. I have grown to love this, every player is unique and every shot is different. But it’s the feeling of the ball coming off the strings and flying just as you had intended for a winner, that is the drug that keeps me addicted to this brilliant game.

Education & Rankings:

  • I graduated with honors from Drake University in America with a degree in Environmental Science. This is another passion of mine!
  • I got my 1st ATP point in September and am currently ranked around 1700 in singles and 930 in doubles.



Ivan Durham - Senior Performance Tennis coach

Tom is an extremely dedicated tennis player. His passion for the game is immense and his inner desire to improve himself is an example to us all. Tom’s athletic ability is second to none. Given time and support I have no doubt Tom will go a long way in the sport. I would also like to add that Tom is one of the nicest, most sincere, honest and decent young athletes that I have had the pleasure of working with.
