2019 BWF US International Challenge

HI Everyone!

Merry Christmas! I am home visiting family for Christmas and enjoying it greatly!

California was great despite some tough losses. I learned a lot and showed I can compete with the best. It is time for some rest for Christmas and then putting in the hard work before nationals!

I moved up in ranking in Mens Singles from 368 to 305 which is a good move up!

Arrived in California!


I haven’t been home much for the past few months, but I just arrived at my last tournament of the year. The Yonex K&D Graphic USA International Challenge in Orange California.  I am in the main draw in all three events. I play against Belgium in singles, and Chinese Taipei in both doubles and mixed. 

Due to recent financial challenges I am not playing the Toronto Open in January, so this is my last big tournament until the National Championships in February. 

I am very pumped to play. Had a few tough matches in the past few weeks, and some good training. I am on the right track and excited to take steps forward.
