“It all started at the age of four. My mom would bribe me to go to Mary Pat’s ‘Tennis Training for Toddlers,’ and she promised me every time after tennis we would go to Baskin Robbins! Ten years later, I look back and thank my mother so much, because if it was not for Mary Pat’s encouragement and intelligence in tennis, I do not know where I would be right now. Tennis has directed me in so many directions, that it still astonishes me everyday. MP is the most positive women I know. I have never seen her in a bad mood, and she has the attitude of a winner, because she is one. I feel absolutely honored to be able to contribute some of my gratitude into her book, and I will thank her till the day I die about how much she has stepped up my tennis game. ”
