In today’s episode we speak to former Canadian pro tennis player Patricia Hy.

Patricia was a top 30 WTA player and a Grand Slam quarter finalist, who has since become a successful mental skills coach, using her perspective as a former player, coach and tennis parent to help nurture relationships between the three.

As a child, she faced hardship like no other tennis player at that time. Born in Cambodia, Hy and her mother were forced to flee the country on foot, escaping to Thailand and then Hong Kong just a week before the Cambodia border closed in 1971.

Patricia chats to CTC Host Dan Kiernan about how this experience shaped her professional tennis career and life, and how she dealt with hardships in the sport, including falling off the world rankings 3 times.

Patricia’s story is one of hard work, perspective, resilience and mental strength.  Get the notepad ready for some life and tennis lessons from someone who has seen all areas in the sport.
