Felix is  a 17-year-old boy from Hilversum, The Netherlands, that always had a passion for sports. Although tennis is his favorite sport, he also has been a very talented soccer player. Felix is currently a senior in high school at the Comenius College and he will graduate in June 2012. Felix is able to combine his top sport and school career as a result of his ‚ÄúLOOT‚ÄĚ status. This LOOT status is only given to the top 10 best players in his age group.

Throughout his junior career Felix has always been ranked top 10 nationally in his age group and fully educated by the Dutch Tennis Federation (KNLTB). The KNLTB awarded him the status of National Talent which is still valid today. He played all the national junior circuits resulting in national team selctions to play the european winter team championships.

The last three years Felix has been a member of the Pro M tennis academy where he practices close to 15 hours a week with some of the best players in the country. 

At the moment he has a national open ranking of 242 which is below his potential. The last year Felix has grown 5 inches what caused a lot of small injuries that prevented him from playing many tournaments.

The last months Felix is top fit and working hard on his conditioning and physique, resulting in more powerful strokes. Felix is an allround player that is very comfertable at the baseline. He is a very hard worker and his biggest weapons are his serve and his forehand and he moves very well on the court. He also has solid volleys and good returns and he is working on improving his doubles game.
