Tommy Robredo works hard in supporting wheel chair tennis

Listening to the Australian Open on AO radio I heard about Tommy Robredos work supporting wheel chair tennis. This is the kind of stuff I like to hear and makes me more interested in Tommy and want him to win.

So I thought I would just have a quick look into it and true enough Tommy is an ambassador for wheel chair tennis.

“I am delighted to be an ambassador for wheelchair tennis. I became the tournament director of an event in memory of my friend Santi Silvas, and have established a foundation specifically to promote the sport. I hope I can help raise the profile of this exciting part of tennis.”

There we have it. A new player for me to follow. I like a reason like this to get behind a player. I’ve seen similar for Vika, Nadal, Fed and others. This makes me far more interested in them long term.
