I have always looked at Lleyton and thought one day I want that to be me on court and hopefully my dreams will come true if I continue to train hard.
I was heading home from the Australian Open this year when my phone rang and I was informed that Pat Rafter wanted to hit with me that afternoon if possible. Dad spun the car around and we hightailed it back to Melbourne so I could hit with Pat. Pat was fantastic and at one stage when I asked which way the score was going :-) Pat kindly laughed and said "your kidding aren't you" of cause I was, but I thought I might be close! I really appreciated the opportunity to hit with Pat that afternoon.
