Sam Groth: 'My Tennis Life' Welcome Blog

Hi Everyone!

I’ve been traveling around the world as a professional tennis player for just over 10 years now. During that time I've had some incredible highs, some tough lows, and the chance to experience so many different countries and cultures all while doing something I love. And now, I’m ready to share all of that with you. I’ve teamed up with Tennis Channel for a new series that gives you a look into my tennis life. It’s the first multiplatform-content series they’ve ever done, and allows you to follow me all year on television, online and throughout social media.

You'll get the chance to explore the tournaments I’m playing in and get to know the people who are important to me, but I also want to be able to share the things about my life that you wouldn't normally see - some of the not-so-glamorous aspects of a professional tennis player’s daily life.

You’ll see good days, bad days, and everything in between. Join me as I take you behind the scenes of what life is really like on the tour – from fancy hotels to delayed flights, the highs of a win and lows experienced after tough matches, right down to the down time with my family and friends, I want to bring you along for the ride.

Follow my journey on, as well as on Tennis Channel’s Facebook page, Twitter and Instagram.

You can also follow me on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. I'm excited you can be a part of this experience and I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do.
