Get to Know Your Pros: Andrew Edition

  • When did you first start playing tennis?

I first started playing tennis at age four and half in South Africa.

  • What is your favorite travel destination?

We went to Hawaii on honeymoon and that was spectacular; it was paradise.

  • Who inspired you to play tennis?

My dad inspired me because he grew up playing a little bit but there was a mutual family friend who also showed an interest in coaching and was a former tennis player growing up so she inspired us as well as a family.

  • If you could have a superpower what would it be?

To control the weather

  • Why do you like teaching tennis?

To give back a little bit to people. I was fortunate enough to be taught and I wanted to share my knowledge and experience with people. To have the opportunity to give back to people who want to play the sport is the main reason.

  • Who would you trade places with?

If I could trade places with anyone I would trade places with my one year old son so I could go back to being a little kid.

  • Favorite surface to play on?

My favorite surface to play on is outdoor hard court.

  • Who is your dream coach?

The coach who coached Federer when he was a kid would be my choice from the technical standpoint. He is who I try to model my teaching technically around.
