Read Pierre's Story Here
The making of a professional athlete is often what gets lost in the story of their career. For tennis players especially, with such an international presence to the sport, elite juniors have to overcome a number of challenges to succeed. For Pierre Hughes Herbert, a top 50 singles player and top 5 doubles player, the financial stress on his family was one of those challenges. Many juniors have to travel across the world to play tournaments, and even after they play well, have to do it all over again in the lower levels of the professional ranks. This is a great example of how everyone in the family plays a part in a professional athlete's success.
