Hi! I'm Bethanie Mattek-Sands. I’m a US professional tennis player, 7 time grand slam champion, 2016 Olympic Gold Medalist and former World #1 Womens Doubles player.
I was born March 23, 1985 in Rochester, Minnesota. It was just a short time later when my family uprooted and we made our way to Wisconsin so I could hone my tennis skills further. While living in Wisconsin my love for the Green Bay Packers grew and still burns strong today. Sunday NFL Football is my favorite day of the week!
Even though we loved Wisconsin, my parents realized Florida had far more opportunities for my tennis growth and they decided to make the move so I could continue my training at the world renowned Evert Tennis Academy. I am thankful for all those that helped and supported me along this journey and the amazing opportunities that led to me being able to turn Pro at the age of 14.
Tennis has taken me all over the world and I have been fortunate to meet some incredible people along the way, including my husband, Justin. We love our adventures on the road; enjoying local culture, food, and of course shopping for me. There is nothing quite like coming home to Phoenix, AZ though and spending time with our dog, Ruger, and meeting up with friends we haven’t seen for a while.
When I am not on court there are a few places you may find me on a daily basis. I love to start my mornings over coffee/tea reading anything from Tim Ferriss to Eckhart Tolle; centering myself has really helped me discover what goals I have and the path I’ll take in order to achieve them. I spend a lot of my free time traveling the path of enlightenment through reading, writing, learning and discovering new aspects about fitness, fashion, food, cultures and history. But as so many of you know I am always excited to talk about fashion and food, not to mention I have some gluten-free, dairy-free recipes that will blow your socks off!
Super excited to chat with you all on Friday and can't wait to see what questions you come up with!
