Henrik Wiersholm was victorious at the world famous Les Petits As junior tournament! Using his Wilson Blade 98 tennis racket, Henrik defeated fellow Wilson player Bogdan Borza , 6-2, 5-7, 6-3 in the final.
We caught up with the upcoming American player and asked him a few questions to get to know him a bit better. Here’s what Henrik had to say.
What was the coolest thing about playing Les Petits As?
Henrik: You are treated like a professional (they provide lodging, transportation, player’s lounge etc.) and you play in front of large crowds – and kids ask for autographs.
Who is your tennis idol?
Henrik: Roger Federer
If you could play a doubles match w/ anyone dead or alive, who would be the 3 people?
Henrik: Roger Federer, John McEnroe and Bob Bryan
What is the best song to get pumped before a match?
Henrik: Black and Yellow
What is the worst trouble you have ever gotten into?
Henrik: A couple of years ago I threw my racquet into the back fence. Unfortunately – or in retrospect, fortunately – my coach, Dan Willman, saw it and immediately told me to pack my gear and leave. I was not allowed to come back for a few of days – and then only after I finished a ton of sprints.
What do you love about your Wilson racket?
Henrik: The Blade has feel and at the same time has quite a bit of pop.
