1994 – 1996 Established reputation as one of world’s leading junior players, competing at all Grand Slam events with a highest ranking of 16 for Singles and 9 for Doubles, including 2 Junior Grand Slam Doubles Titles (US Open).
1997 – 2000 Promising initial period as a professional player, reaching career highs of 114 in Singles and 50 for Doubles, including 3rd round appearance at Wimbledon, but unable to fulfil potential due to a number of injuries.
2001 – 2002 Major operations (2 shoulder and 1 wrist) meant temporary retirement from the tour.
2003 – 2006 Return to playing full-time, but now based in the UK. Achieved 290 Singles ranking, but career progression limited by finance as this was a period of combining playing with coaching and trying to self-fund tennis. In effect, a period of part-time playing, including competing in money tournaments in UK (they help pay the bills, but aren’t for world-ranking points), so limited opportunity to fulfil playing potential.
2007 - Proper re-launch of professional career with a real understanding of what’s involved and what’s required.
2010 - Fulltime Coaching at the Kim Grant TEnnis Academy
