Personal and Academic Information

Nathalie is an eighteen years old tennis player from Gland, which is in the French speaking part of Switzerland. Besides tennis, which is her favorite sport, she also enjoys skiing in the winter and wake boarding in the summer. Nathalie is very athletic and also enjoys trying new sports

Nathalie is a very good student and currently a senior in high school at the highest level in Switzerland, in a bilingual program (French and German). Her expected graduation date is July 2013. Since young age, tennis and school have been a winning combination for her. Sports in general and tennis in particular have given her the balance to achieve good results in school. Her best opportunity to combine playing tennis and pursue her studies is to attend a US college or University and play college tennis.

She successfully completed both her SAT as TOEFL and she is eligible to compete in both NCAA as NAIA.

Athletic Information

Nathalie started to play tennis at the age of 9. At the age of 14-15 she won several regional tournaments which gave her the motivation to further train hard.  Now she practises tennis 8 hours a week in two different clubs in Gland. She is a patient player who knows how to wait for the right opportunity to play offensively. Nathalie also has the capacity of adapting her game to all types of opponents.  Nathalie’s best shot is probably her forehand, which allows her finish up points or move up to the net. Her mental strength is probably her greatest asset. Even when she is down Nathalie will never give up and always fight to the end in order to turn the game around.

Nathalie is ranked 98 in the national open Swiss womens rankings and is ranked among the best 20 in her age group.
