The road of a tennis player takes many twists and turns. There are peaks, valleys, and decisions that can alter the entire trajectory of a career. Bradley Klahn was late the party compared to his peers, having waited until he was nearly a teenager to devote himself to the game.
The SoCal native would rise up the junior rankings, build a legacy in college tennis, and embark on a pro career that is still in flight as of 2023. But the injury hardships were prevalent at some of the most inopportune moments of Klahn’s career, and he was forced to ask and answer the same difficult question. Why are you still out here?
Klahn’s appearance on the Tennis.com Podcast with Kamau Murray sheds light on the life a pro tennis player that the world doesn’t get to see, and why he continues to answer the bell and push forward in the face of adversity.
