Personal and academic information

 

Fiona is a 19-year-old girl who grew up with her mother and big brother in Orbe, Switzerland. Fiona likes to play golf, beach volley, football as well as trying new sports (she practiced an unknown sport in her youth called “baton twirling”). Her family would describe Fiona as diligent, hard-working, generous and persevering.

She graduated in July 2013 in Lausanne (High School of Beaulieu) and is scheduled to take her TOEFL in August and her ACT in September of 2014. 

Fiona sees College Tennis as a great experience to raise her game, to get a good education and to grow as a person. It’s a dream that she hopes will come true.

 

Athletic information

 

Fiona has been playing tennis since the age of three and started competing when she was 8. During her junior career, Fiona has played several open tournaments for juniors and seniors in singles and doubles. 

She is a right-handed player who plays aggressively. Her biggest strengths are her forehand and her slice. She has an all-around game that bothers opponents, with her variety of shots. She takes every opportunity to come to the net and finish-up the points. On top of that, Fiona is a very tough competitor and hard worker both on and off the court. 

Fiona is three time junior state champion, one time active state champion and one time double junior state champion. She has also played interclub in the National C League, which is the third best league in Switzerland in the past three years. On top of that, she won her first match against a national player (top 75 in national open ranking) in May. 

Her current national open ranking is 130, and has consistently been going up in the past two years.
