Tripp Phillips
Pro Tennis Player




Why did you decide to be a tennis player?

-I started playing with my parents when we were waiting for my sister to finish her gymnastics lessons.  I was only four years old, but I really loved playing.  I always loved basketball and soccer as well, but as I got older it became pretty clear that tennis was the sport for me.


If you weren’t a tennis player what would you be?

-Great question...I'd love to say wide receiver for the Redskins, but maybe I'd be an intern for Dani and Barbie at the St. Louis Aces.  


What do you do when not playing tennis?

-I love spending time with friends and my family.  My wife Laura and I have a 7 month old son Owen.  He is a lot of fun and keeps us busy.  I am a pretty big sports fan, and the NFL and college basketball usually suck me in.  


What is your career highlight so far?

-I'd say my career highlights are making the semifinals of the 2006 US Open in doubles as well as playing for the St. Louis Aces last year.


Who were your heroes growing up?

-Jimmy Connors and my dad.


What was your favorite subject in school?

-Sport Psychology
