My playing career has come to an end, and I am so incredibly grateful for the career that it turned out to be. All the evidence pointed towards me not making it in this profession. However, my luck materialized in the people that came into my life and impacted my existence in ways that transcended tennis. I am so incredibly grateful for these people. You know who you are. Though my own resilience and through the guidance of others, i got to live my dreams. I got to become what I wanted and said as a child. How grateful I am.
