Who is Tyler?
Taiwanese-American Professional Tennis Player
Where Tyler's From
I was born in Spokane, Washington on August 12, 1995. I grew up playing baseball, basketball, and soccer, along with violin and piano, before falling in love with tennis fairly late at age 12. I did not start for my high school varsity tennis team my freshman year, but eventually became a blue-chip recruit and committed to Yale. My success at Yale has given me the confidence to pursue my dream of playing professional tennis.
What Tyler's Doing Now
I just graduated in May 2017, and am starting the pro tour grind. I'm traveling the world playing ITF Futures as I try to climb the ATP Rankings ladder. I am based out of Southern California.
GOALS FOR THE FUTURE
What Tyler Hopes to Achieve
Professional tennis never crossed my mind until my last couple years at Yale. I continue to fall more and more in love with the sport, and I am grateful everyday for the opportunity to even have a shot at chasing my dream. Being the best tennis player I can be is my motivation to wake up every morning.
