Nine-year-old Michael Fotin, who is entering fourth grade at Westport’s Greens Farms Academy, has been ranked New England’s top tennis player among boys 10 and under, according to the United States Tennis Association (USTA).
Michael, who first held a tennis racquet at age 3 and began playing competitively at 7, has won 25 of his last 26 USTA tournament matches, according to Alex Fotin, his father.
He plays tennis regularly at the tennis club Chelsea Piers in Stamford, his father said.
“His ultimate goal is to become a tennis pro and get ranked top 10 in the world,” the proud father said.
