I grew up playing tennis as a child and have unforgettable memories  having fun traveling around the world and competing.

My dad, Oleg Kravets, was my tennis coach. We played tennis almost every day and traveled all over Former Soviet Union playing tournaments! I started playing tennis when I was six and have been enjoying each moment of this great lifetime sport experience ever since! My tennis reward was The Scholarship to the University of Hawaii, where I played for UH Tennis Team for 3 years. I also was second ranked junior tennis player in the Former Soviet Union in the 15– under division.
