I decided to finish my school first, before starting a tennis career.
And I think it was the right decision. It wasn't always easy
handling both, but I think I learned a lot and it definetely helped
me grow as a person. And I really enjoyed my time in school. I love
to learn and I was able to meet my friends nearly every day.
Something I am not able to do anymore.
school or tennis
I attended a special school in Germany. Normally we go 13
years to school, but I got my degree in 12 years. I had the
same amount of lessons, so I had longer school days. There
wasn't a lot time left for playing tennis. So I was really
happy finishing my school in June 2009. Since then I was
able to focus on my tennis and playing tournaments on a
How everything started
To be honest, I can't remember, when I stepped on a tennis court for the first
time. I started really early. My whole family played tennis at that time and we
spent lots of time at the tennis club.
Since I started to walk, I grabbed a racket and run onto the tennis court.
I had so much fun playing tennis and still have it now :)). It was always my
dream to become a professional tennis player.
In the beginning of my career, I was staying in a tent while I was
playing tennis tournaments in the summer. This of course saved a
lot of money, but it was always a special experience as well.
I can remember sleeping in Norway at 2 degrees or bats which were
flying against our tent in England. What is nice to stay in a tent,
is that you always have your own bed with you, you are able to cook
your own food and you are a lot outside in the nature.
Until now, I created all my websites on my own and programmed them together
with my mother. I love this creative work. This is probably already the
6th design we have programmed and each of them is something special in its
own way. If you are working so long for a project, it becomes a part of
yourself. This website has something especially authentic.
Of course, I am far away from being a professional webdesigner, but I
think, my mother and me did a good job.
I hope you like and enjoy it.
