From Austria to the United States! Michael Gurtner is living the dream of many tennis youngsters. He managed to secure a great scholarship for Tiffin University in Ohio.
Last year, he took part in the uniexperts Tennis Showcase in Cologne, Germany. Afterwards he made his decision: “I would like to start my journey as college tennis player in the US!”
“I WASN'T SURE WHETHER I REALLY WANTED TO PLAY FOR A COLLEGE TEAM IN THE US AND OF COURSE ALSO STUDY THERE. [...] BECAUSE OF THIS EVENT, I WAS CONVINCED TO BEGIN MY JOURNEY. HERE YOU GET A GREAT INSIGHT ABOUT THE PREVAILING ATMOSPHERE AND IT ALSO GIVES YOU THE OPPORTUNITY TO GET IN TOUCH WITH COACHES AND THUS TO GET INFORMATION ABOUT LIFE IN THE US AS A STUDENT. I MET MY MY COACH OF TIFFIN UNIVERSITY THERE. THEREFORE I AM CONVINCED THAT THE EVENT HAS AN POSITIVE IMPACT ON FINDING THE RIGHT UNIVERSITY.”
(Michael Gurtner, on his experience at the #TSC2018)
Ohio and the Tiffin Dragons will be the new home of the talented player for the next years. Michael will start his US adventure in Fall 2019. We wish him the best of success and tons of fun with his new team. Go Tiffin Dragons!
