Playing Career:

As a junior tennis player, I finished off my U18
campaign ranked #2 within South Africa and a
World Junior Ranking of #371. Some of my
highlights were winning 3 IFT’s (International
Tennis Federation) Titles.
I then attended Tyler Junior College in Texas,
The USA, which was and still is ranked #1 in the
Nation for their Division, on a Sports
Scholarship. I completed 2 years at Tyler, and
then transferred to Mississippi State
University, which was and still is ranked Top
20 in NCAA.
I am currently ranked #5 in South Africa for
Men’s Singles and #3 for Men’s Doubles with
an ATP Singles Ranking of #1170 and ATP
Doubles Ranking of #760

Coaching Career:

My Coaching Career started in 2015 when I
was afforded the opportunity to work as a
Coach for the Summer Camp hosted at Tyler
Junior College during the Summer Break.
In 2016 I had the privilege of working at the
Nike Malibu Summer Camp hosted at
Pepperdine University in Malibu, California for
3 months.
I became a full-time Coach in 2017, coaching
at Eagle Fustar Elite Performance Academy in
Santa Clara, California, where I got to work
with some of the Top Juniors in the USA.
In 2018, I decided to move permanently back
to South Africa to pursue my Coaching Career.
I started coaching at D.F.T.C. in 2019, and
have found me forever home.
January 2021, saw me and Janet Jooste
take ownership of D.F.T.C and have now been
given the opportunity to grow something that
has already had a successful foundation with
an exponential amount of potential to become
something far greater.
