Interview

Give us 5 words that best describe you as an athlete:

committed, tenacious, responsible, athletic, friendly

Tell us about your best memory of your athletic career:

I actually have two best tennis memories and both come from ITF tournaments I played in. The first one, I was playing the doubles semifinal in an ITF in Cuba and I was in a very close match. We ended up saving five match points and won the match on my winner to get to the final. The other memory was when I won my first ITF singles points against a Canadian Davis Cup player in the G4 of Queretaro in Mexico, where I lost the first set and then won the second set before then saving a couple of match points in the third and winning the match in the third set tie break. I then went on to win my next match as well to get to the quarterfinals!

Goals:

Winning the national championship with my university team and hopefully then having a successful pro career after that!

Anything else we should know?

I have been selected to represent my state of Chihuahua on multiple occasions and have had some great success at the national and ITF level. One of my best matches was a close match I played against Miguel Gallardo who has been ranked as high as 189th in the ATP Ranking. I put up a great fight in that match, but ended up loosing 6-4 6-4 in two very close sets!
