Eddie Herr/Orange Bowl double as a 12 years old, winning Eddie Herr U14 as 13 years old. Ranked first at Tennis Europe Junior Tour U14 (being younger than main competitors). As a 14 years old, took a set off from Rezai and double bageled Minella in one of first pro matches. Had tons of support and wild-cards from Octagon and Natasha Zvereva for the coaching advice.
Retired before turning 18 (not counting one doubles match).
