Filip Peliwo: “Fitness can get you through”

I was always really, really competitive as a kid. I hated losing so much and I wanted to win at everything, even if it was a random game with friends at the age of eight or younger.

Last season, I was able to play the majority of the season through lingering back spasms. This year, however, I had to sit out about 75% of the match due to debilitating back pain. Heading into this year, I was named captain of the team, a role I shared with a senior on the team. I was looking forward to sharing captaincy duties with him, feeding off one another’s strengths and leading the team to an Ivy League title. However, by the end of our second month of practice, my back spasms intensified. On top of that, my co-captain quit the team.

Life of a Canadian College Tennis Player – Victor Hoang

Training at ACE really helped my game mature in all aspects.
