There are a lot of people who helped support me on my way to the Yonex US Open Grand Prix Gold. I want to thank all of them, and give a quick update for those interested.
The Yonex US Open ended with losses in the first round of singles, and round of 16 in doubles. The major difference between the US Open and the Canada Open? After my losses I had some very valuable input from people I respect, most notably Toby Ng. Such input in invaluable as someone with experience from the outside looking in can see things that might seem obvious but are often missed by the people stuck in the situation.
For those of you who didn’t keep up to date- in doubles Kyle Golding and I played against a pair from Napel in the first round and won, then got beaten very badly by the number 3 seeded pair from Poland. In singles I lost to India.
I have learned a lot, and even came home with (a very little) prize money.
