"Right now it’s just deciding between whether you want to play tennis or you want to just end the career, so at this point it's just, yeah I want to continue, so I’ll have to make the sacrifice."
Former University of Virginia standout Julia Elbaba is on this week to talk college tennis, injuries, reality TV and the US Open.
The 26-year-old was working on a comeback from an elbow injury when the shutdown halted her progress. The former college No. 1 has been ranked as high as No. 374 on tour, but is having to start over from scratch. She's also dealing with the aftermath of the USTA shutting down player development in New York.
The Long Island native talks about getting into the media world and having her first taste of reality TV on the Bravo show "Summerhouse". She also opines on the US Open's unusual plans for 2020 and how her friend Bianca Andreescu winning it all in 2019 inspired her.
