My Tennis Life Has Changed My Life

Decent Essays
My Tennis Life The one event that changed my life forever was when my dad first took me to the tennis courts when I was only three years old. Tennis has always been my father’s passion and he wanted to pass that on to me. As every young toddler, I would watch cartoons and children's shows, but when my dad would get home, I would watch tennis with him and it was equally interesting to me, even at a very young age. My life has evolved around the experience I have gained from tennis and wouldn’t be the same without it. This one time that my dad took me to the tennis courts, even though it was such a simple action, has changed my future eternally and nothing would be the same if that had never happened.

The day that my dad took me to the courts, pictures show me carrying a Dora junior racket while wearing a “Daddy’s little Princess” shirt and I was overjoyed. In the early years of my life after tennis was introduced to me, every day I would go with my dad and chase after tennis balls, without really being able to play yet, while the sun was setting. Even though it was so long ago, I remember feeling tiny compared to the enormous and intimidating tennis court in front of me. My main and the most vivid memories of these times were after practice when my father and I would go to our favorite ice cream shop, Baskin Robbins, and order the same thing as each other every time.

As I got older, I started playing even more and played tournaments and got approached by new coaches.
