A pair of #UVAMTEN players, rising senior Thai-Son Kwiatkowski and rising junior Henrik Wiersholm, are among four collegiate players selected by the USTA for a prestigious opportunity. During this week’s Davis Cup quarterfinal between the United States and Croatia near Portland, Ore., the four collegiate players in the nation are working alongside the pros. The USTA is hosting a training camp for members of the collegiate national team to assist and support the Davis Cup squad during the tie, giving the athletes a chance to learn from and practice with some of the best players and coaches in the country. Check out this article from the USTA in which Wiersholm, who grew up four hours north in Seattle, talks about the experience.
