Wheelchair Tennis: Fiona Sing continues her hectic schedule

Fiona Sing’s busy period on the tennis court is set to continue with the upcoming 2017 Australian National Wheelchair Tennis Championships.

The national titles will be held in Melbourne from November 17-19 and come just weeks after Sing played a pair of tournaments in Sydney and Wollongong.

Sing was in the two major cities for the NSW Metropolitan Wheelchair Tennis Open and the NSW Open.

Her best effort was in the doubles at the metro event where she claimed the gold with doubles partner Helen Smith.

Sing trains at Tamworth Tennis Club with coach Daniel Nash and head coach Jarrod Campbell.

Campbell said Sing’s progression was encouraging and her determination to succeed was strong.

“Fiona’s progressed a really long way under Nashy,” Campbell said.

“We just want to support her in her goals which is to make it to the Commonwealth Games and the Olympics.

“She still has a long way to go and will have to put in a lot of work.”

The work will revolve mainly around getting Fiona tennis fit.

“It’s going to take a lot of hard work. We'll do a lot of work with fitness,” Campbell said.

“We need to make her a tennis athlete rather than a power athlete. She loves to lift heavy weights.”

Along with the upcoming national championships in Melbourne, Sing said she will be heading over to New Zealand early in 2018 to compete in an international tournament as well.
