TENNIS.com Podcast

Sports & Recreation

"I enjoy being in the gym and trying to become the best athlete I can be. I enjoy being on the court as many hours as I need to be."This week brings Nick Monroe to the show following his 17th year on tour. The 38-year-old is moving full speed ahead into 2021 by putting 100 percent effort into getting fitter and better every single day. Monroe played college tennis for the University of North Carolina before pursuing a pro career. He'd get up to No. 253 in singles before focusing only on doubles after turning 30. Now ranked No. 73 in doubles, he has won four career ATP titles and just reached the quarterfinals of Roland Garros alongside Tommy Paul. All along the way, his father has been his coach, and he explains how their relationship has evolved. Talking from his home base in Austin, Texas, Monroe reflects on a rollercoaster season full of bubbles and COVID-19 tests. While many have struggled this year to find motivation, Monroe is a testament to how far hard work can get you. He has a passion for training that's simply unparalleled and has no plans to slow down. Watch TENNIS.com Podcast episodes on YouTube and Facebook. Learn more about your ad choices.
