Sometimes you have to take a different route. College Tennis has been a great option for some players who where not ready for the Professional Tour. Players like Collins grew so much but at the end of the day is due to discipline, motivation, open-mindedness, dealing with adversity, and determination. Making it is not easy. It requires work everyday. I hope you players can listen to the interview and see how confident Collins and her recognition of college coaching and current coaching. It is never too late to play college tennis even if it is for year or two.
There is no better trip for inspiring college tennis prospects than visiting the USTA National Campus in Orlando,Florida. You will have the opportunity to see every level of college tennis teams from top ranked to non-top ranked teams. The facility and atmosphere is amazing and worth experiencing.

we need a list of past and current Finns who played college tennis in the United States - you need to be recognized because you can pave the way for the new generation
Here is a list of Finnish Players that played and are currently playing. Please add your name to the list.
We believe in creating a platform for young Finns in sports is very crucial. College Tennis is a good outlet for talented young Finns. Not everyone can make it to be a pro-athlete but everyone who has played sports at a competitive level could play college sports in the United States on scholarship. Our goal is to help young players to stay in the game and to find a college where they can show their athletic and academic ability. We will be promoting past Finns who played college tennis and current Finns who are playing college tennis. Lets get inspired because the sky is the limit for Finnish Tennis at every level
My name is Dominic Modise. I am a former College Student-Athlete and Coach. I was born in South Africa during post-apartheid era which pushed me to have the dream of leaving for the US with the hopes of playing college tennis. The opportunity came up when I was an Auditor for Ernest & Young to be a walk-on at a Junior College in Texas.I then went to Nick Bollettieri Tennis Academy to be a coach and play college tennis at the University of Hawaii on Scholarship. Tennis has opened doors for me to be able to coach some of the top players around the world and to contribute to the sports around the world with my knowledge.
