  • Personal
    • Began playing tennis at age 3 with his dad in England.
    • Earliest tennis memory: "My dad would hang a sponge ball on the ceiling in our living room and I could barely reach it with a tennis racquet. I would just swing at it over and over. We also had an apple tree in our garden and he caught me and my brother hitting them with our racquets. We hit them over the house and into the neighbor's garden. They came over and complained. From then on, he said 'no more apples, let's get some tennis balls'."
    • Traveled to Nice, France, to train and study from age 13-18, before moving to the U.S. to attend the University of Memphis.
    • Studied international business at the University of Memphis from 2015-18, earning All-American honours in both singles and doubles his senior year.
    • Father, Paul, is half-English and half-Irish and is a retired train driver. Mother, Penny, is Malaysian-bornand isa nurse. Oldest brother Sam (4 years older) is a pediatric nurse and middle brother Harry (2 years older) is a junior doctor.
    • Favourite shot is forehand passing shot and favourite surface is clay.
    • Tennis idols growing up were Rafael Nadal, Andre Agassi and Marcelo Rios.
    • Fan of Manchester United football club.
    • Biggest passions outside of tennis include cooking, watching Marvel movies and watching anime.
    • Enjoys listening to Coldplay.
    • Favourite food is dim sum.
    • Overcame childhood cancer (rhabdomyosarcoma) at age 2: "I had a cancerous tumor near my stomach and needed chemotherapy and surgery. It had to be removed. I don't remember it, but my parents said it was pretty difficult. There's always an underlying part of me that wants to show kids, who are undergoing something similar, that they can have dreams that they can achieve. There's hope. I donated my winnings from my first ITF title to the hospital that treated me - St. Bart's in London."
