At the age of eight, Yannik Rahman discovered his passion and drive for tennis. Inspired by tennis players like Serena Williams, Roger Federer, and Novak Djokovic, Yannik has learned to conquer his fears and challenges during play-offs, from encountering gusty winds of 40 mph or persevering during a tournament despite his fractured shoulder. "Honestly, the main key for success in tennis and in life is to work hard and to believe that you can do anything, even in the toughest moments,” says Yannik.
