My nomination for Junior Athlete of the Year

Blake Mott – Tennis
Blake Mott’s tennis talent is frightening. At only 14 years of age Mott has signaled his intentions of carrying the torch for Australian tennis with a series of excellent results during the nomination period. After helping the Australian team qualify for the 2010 Asia/Oceania Junior Championships, Mott won his first career singles title by taking out the under-18 division of the 2010 New Zealand Indoor Championships.

I’d like to thank the people that nominated me for this award, Sandon Stolle National High Performance Academy – Sydney Coach and all trainers and coaching staff from Tennis Australia  & NSWIS… I felt truly honoured to be there and for being nominated. I had a great night. I would never have believed a few years ago that I would be at an event with athletes of this calibre.. while I didn’t win I was inspired. Blake
