Hey everyone,

My name is Alex Lawson, I recently graduated from the University of Notre Dame (May 2016), now I am in relentless pursuit of my dream of becoming the best doubles player in the world. 

WHO:
                                   Height- 6'3'' 
                                   Weight- 180 lbs
                                   Left Handed
-NCAA doubles final four
-3x NCAA doubles qualifier 
-3 consecutive years with a top 10 NCAA doubles ranking (with 3 different partners)
-2nd most doubles wins in Notre Dame tennis history

WHAT:
I have recently started playing professional tournaments in an effort to build up my ranking and eventually get the point where I can be consistently competing in (and winning) grand slam level tournaments such as the U.S. Open and Wimbledon.  
In order to make this dream a reality I will need your help!  Entry level professional tennis is very expensive, with travel costs, equipment expenses, tournament fees and other miscellaneous expenses thrown in I will not be able to cover the cost of playing on my own.  

WHY:
I grew up in the dry heat of Tempe, Arizona, playing tennis since I was first able to hold a racket.  I have loved the sport and given everything to it over the past 13+ years of my life and I would love nothing more than to make the sport I love my livlihood.  

I am extremely grateful for any help I can get, and I plan to pay you back once I attain my goals and have the means to do so.  Thank you, have an amazing day. 

-Alex
