"Playing tennis has completely changed my life, as a professional football player, prior to my accident I was constantly active, competitive and driven to succeed
I chose tennis over other Paralympic sports because it difficult, challenging, physically demanding and technical.
You must put in the hours to succeed, there are no limitations or easy routes because of your disability.
I compete against people who are far more able than myself and I like this because I do not want my life ruled by what I cannot do. I do not want short cuts - I want to succeed."
