Hard road
to victory

In 2010, the US Tennis Association estimated the cost to be a highly competitive professional tennis player was US143,000 a year - travel alone being at least $60,000. Only those ranked in the top 160 of the men's tour might contemplate breaking even on such costs.

It's a tough and solitary road, and many of us struggle to get the exposure necessary to compete on the global stage. Living so far away from the action doesn't improve the odds. The good news is, Kiwi's aren't one's for worrying about the odds...

NZ has seen many great tennis players, here's just a few names you may know:

                                               the late 60's and early 70's, and he was the 1974

                                               French Open Doubles champion

  1983   Chris Lewis             Reached the Wimbledon Finals as an unseeded player.
