Where is your favorite place to play tennis in Hong Kong? What makes this place special? My favorite place is the center court of Victoria Park.

If you could play on any court with any player, where and who would it be with? And why? Roland Garros is my favorite tournament and Rafa Nadal is the King of the clay court. I grew up and developed as a tennis player in clay courts so that would be one of my dreams.

Your current favorite tennis player? Rafa Nadal

Your favorite player of all time and why? Roger Federer because he is 36 years old, he’s number one again and the way he plays – it’s just beautiful.

Why do you make a great tennis coach?  I love sports in general and particularly tennis. I’ve been practicing sports since I was a child and one day that became my profession. The passion for coaching, my experience and what I did learn from my mentors are my strengths. I like to help people to improve and to get their goals.

When teaching your students, which shot is your specialty? If I have to say one I would probably say the backhand.
