Extremely honoured to be shortlisted for the 2015 Women of the Future Awards for the category of Sport. All women recognised this year and the nine previous years are all phenomenal and inspirational, and I feel very privileged to be part of such an amazing group of empowering women. These awards are designed to not just celebrate the career accomplishments of each woman but to recognise them as leaders of tomorrow.
While this is the first year for the category of Sport, a woman who has always been a Woman of the Future to me is my mentor, former trainer, and friend Elena Baltacha, former British No. 1 female tennis player. While she sadly passed on May 4, 2014 due to liver cancer, her lessons on and off the court have been a constant motivator to me and through her actions she has and continues to be a leader to many young tennis players.
The Awards Evening is on October 27, 2015 at the London Hilton on Park Lane. I hope to see you there! Here are the links for more information on the shortlist, the awards, and to reserve your ticket for the Awards Evening:
