Coach Stoloff on Tonelli:
Reason you chose to attend Nevada: The reason I chose Nevada is because it is a very good school and I got a very good scholarship to play tennis. I want to help the team to reach a good level and at the same time, obtain my degree in international business.
Favorite aspect about tennis program: I love the fact that we have practice everyday and the fact that the team becomes "a family". Improving and reaching goals all together is a great feeling for me. You help each other and other people help you, that is how it works in my mind.
Reason you started tennis: I was playing soccer and tennis and I liked tennis more and kept going.
Reason you stayed with tennis: I like playing tournaments and matches and also that it is an individual sport (individual on the court with a team spirit).
What you like/enjoy about tennis: I enjoy giving 100 % on the court and winning great matches. That is such a good feeling. Also, working all together and helping each other. I love going to dual matches and hanging out with the team, practicing and then playing seriously.
Vehicle/Car you would most like to own: Lamborghini Murcielago
Racket you use: Liquid metal radical
Favorite vacation spot: Love snowboarding, and going to the beach (Spain, Italy)
What motivates/inspires you?: The fact that I left my house and live in America now (that my parents paid a lot for me) motivates me a lot, I first want to succeed for them and I'll be happy for myself later. I always want to succeed in everything I do so every time I can improve something and benefit myself, I do it. My friends are very important for me. Since I see most of them only 3 months per year, I love spending time with them and I really know what I aim for.
