The first issue is now available and offers a Q&A with incoming USTA Missouri Valley President Lisa Minihan, who resides in Edmond, Oklahoma.
In the Q&A, Lisa offers her favorite tennis memory:
"There was a female (which was rare back then) tournament director at the HEB Tennis Center in Corpus Christi, Texas when I was playing juniors. My brother and I both played junior events at the facility 2-3 times a year. Over the course of years, we formed a special bond and I always looked forward to playing her events. She was different than any other tournament director I had met. You instantly knew that you mattered as a person, and not just a name on the draw. ADVERTISEMENT My last USTA junior tournament before I graduated was at her facility, and she surprised me with a graduation gift. I had had no idea that she had treasured our friendship as much as I had. She is the reason I love serving as a tournament director. I try to pay it forward and positively impact the lives of the kids that come across my desk."
