Women’s tennis player succeeds due to hard work

It’s certainly not by happenstance that junior Jennifer Saviano shines on the tennis court. Her 9-5 singles record and 7-2 doubles record for the 2011 season is the product of a relentless work ethic that started a long time ago.

A native of Davie, Fla, Saviano picked up her first raquet at only 5-years-old and started playing competitively at 10. Her father, who played professional tennis for nine years, owns Saviano High Performance Tennis Academy, a premiere facility that is notorious for producing collegiate and professional-caliber players. Saviano is one of those players, and her dad has undoubtedly been a major influence on her career.
