ALEX EALA HOPES MORE YOUNG FILIPINOS WILL TAKE MORE INTERES IN TENNIS
After becoming the first Filipina to make it into the quarterfinals of the 2020 French Open Juniors At Roland Garros in Paris, Alex Eala hopes to inspire more young Filipino athletes to take interest in the sport.
“First of all, that other young Filipino tennis players take more interest in the sport and hopefully are more devoted now that they know that they can also do it. It doesn’t matter where they are from,” Alex said.
The 15-year-old athlete said she is “aware that a lot of young Filipino tennis players follow me and watch my matches.”
Given this awareness, Alex said “the most I can do right now is be the best example that I can.”
