Felix from Tennis Brothers on the Road to 1 ATP point

by Jonas Eriksson

Felix has become a well-known figure on the tennis circuit by documenting his quest for one ATP point on his YouTube channel, Tennis Brothers.

Felix from Tennis Brothers on the Tennisnerd Podcast

We sit down with him after getting his first ATP point! It was a journey where he had to go through many tough matches, media challenges, injuries, and more. We talk about his journey, being a pro on the tennis circuit, the lack of money for lower-ranking pros, what tennis is doing wrong, the next steps in his journey and his plans as an ambitious content creator and tennis player.

Next on Felix’ journey is to enter the top 1000 ranked players on the ATP tour. Can he do it? I am confident! I was very impressed by his maturity and determination, which I think bodes well for the future as a tennis player, entrepreneur and person.
