Tendai was born and raised in Harare, Zimbabwe. He is excited about joining our Historic Red Clay courts another season. On heroes: “My parents are my heroes. They pushed me to strive for success and although it might have slightly irritated me as a kid, it molded me into a caring, responsible adult.”
Tendai enjoys going to the gym and searching for “great Groupon deals to go out and relax.”
When not playing or talking tennis, Tendai is happy to talk to anyone about his favorite team, Manchester United. No good Groupon deals? He’d be thoroughly content with just staying home and watching sports.
