OFF COURT WITH SIMON

Why I chose Carolina: the great combination of athletics and academics.

The best part of being a Tar Heel tennis player is: being surrounded by good friends every day.

The aspect of my game I’ve worked on the most since last year is: mental toughness.

Favorite tennis memory: winning Osaka ITF grade A in doubles and competing in all four Junior Grand Slam tournaments.

Dream doubles partner: Conor McGregor

Favorite post-match meal: my mother’s homemade burgers.

My favorite sport, other than tennis, is: soccer, but my favorite sport to watch is UFC.
