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.

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.
