Taylor Fritz, The Rising Tennis Champion
American professional tennis player Taylor Harris Fritz has taken the tennis world by storm after he emerged as the second fastest American to have reached the finals of the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP). More surprisingly, Fritz was just in the third event for his career when he accomplished this. Not surprising at all considering that both his mother and father were professional tennis players and his mother Kathy Fritz used to be one of the Top 10 tennis players.
USA Today named Fritz one of the five male American tennis players who could become possible stars during last year's U.S. Open because of their amazing talents. At age 17, this up-and-coming tennis star from Rancho Santa Fe, California was already ranked number one by the International Tennis Federation (ITF) in the boy's junior category. He would have earned a Slam in the junior championship during the final of last year's French Open but he lost to Tommy Paul, a fellow American. However, he also defeated Paul in the 2015 US Open.
Mail Online said Fritz is seen as a rising star in American tennis and is considered as the youngest among the other male players to have gained entry to Wimbledon this year and was able to face Stan Warwinka. His star rose so fast he has managed to rank No. 63 within the season's half. His popularity comes as a result not only of his talent though, but also his stunning looks and demeanor in and out of the court.
Admirers should however be content to just admire him from a distance since Tennis said Fritz is already married to tennis player Raquel Pedraza. Fritz proposed to his long-time girlfriend under the Eiffel Tower. Despite his busy schedule and good showing in the tennis world. Fritz managed to get a normal high school education. And while his mother was also a tennis star in her own right, she did not force her son into the game.
