Phoebe Suthers (GBR)
She is 14 and represents Great Britain at deaf tennis both juniors and adults. She also plays hearing tennis and won a number of competitions at under 14, 16 and 18.
“I’ve just started using Sergetti technology and I can already see the difference. My game is much more accurate and I’m making less mistakes and beating players that I’ve not beaten before who are rated above me and much older. I have much more control over the ball in difficult situations and can’t wait to play my next tournament with Sergetti technology”
