Personal and Academic Information


Destin Rothe is an 18-year-old boy who was born in Atlanta, Georgia, but grew up in Heidelberg, Germany. He is a sociable person, responsible and adapts quickly to new circumstances. These characteristics have been clearly demonstrated, for example, when he travelled alone to Atlanta for an internship at Heidelberger USA Inc. in October 2017, when he was 16 years old.


Sports has always been a big part of his life. In addition to tennis, he also likes to play soccer. Besides sports, mathematics is his other great passion. Since second grade he is keen on learning mathematical issues and solving complex problems, which is why he wants to study mathematics.


Destin approaches people openly and likes to try out many things, such as working in production at Daimler AG. Destin has a social attitude and is willing to help, which is why he was occasionally involved in a local charitable institution, which sells donated clothes and other things to people from lower social classes at low prices. In addition, he took on the role of a homework supervisor at his school from 2016 to 2018. There he assisted and supported pupils between fifth and seventh grade once a week.


Destin is academically strong and he graduated high school in July 2019 at the highest level of education in Germany (Gymnasium/Abitur) achieving a 3.3 GPA. He achieved a composite score of 30  on his ACT.


After his student exchange in New Jersey in 2016 and the internship in Atlanta, he knows he wants to study mathematics and play college tennis in the USA.


Athletic information:


Destin started playing tennis at the age of six and during his junior career he reached the third place in the state’s club competition at the age of ten with TC Walldorf Astoria. Despite numerous injuries in young years due to growth that have prevented him from continuing to make so much progress, he has not stopped playing tennis. Now he has been playing tennis for several years without any injuries and is constantly improving.


Destin is a 5’9 ft right, two-handed backhand player and his biggest strengths are his forehand and especially his acceleration and pace, which allow him to thwart many attacks from his opponents. He is able to find the perfect balance between offense and defense and his style of playing is very varied using spin, slice, stops and volleys. 


In addition to the singles, Destin also likes to play doubles. He is very team-oriented and is talented in motivating his teammates to give their best.
