Managing emotions is one of life's most difficult tasks. We all experience a gamut of feelings, often at the most inopportune times. And for all the perks of being famous, that class of people gets puts in the unfavorable position of experiencing all of their feelings in the public eye. It's unfortunately why many athletes in the tennis sphere keep their guards up—justifiably nervous and fearful of what they might reveal to adoring (or often not so adoring) fans.
But some people are just rooted in authenticity, comfortable in their own skin and unfazed by the outside noise as they navigate this thing called life. Ajla Tomljanovic is one of those athletes, a player who naturally shares her thoughts while embracing everything that makes her the tennis player she strives to be. The good, the bad, the off-court silliness: it's all there, and it's all Ajla.
