Meet 11 Year Old Kalli Minor… Tennis Champion from COMPTON!

Meet Kalli Minor...  a beautiful 11 year old tennis champion straight out of COMPTON!  You already know about the phenominal tennis champs Serena and Venus Williams… but did you know they grew up in Compton too??  Last week, Mayor Aja Brown and Director Ava DuVernay brought “A Wrinkle In Time to the Dollarhide Community Center and Yours Truly was on the scene to capture all the magic!  And of course.. Kalli was the at center of media attention with her charm and confidence.  Wish I asked her a question of my own…  dang it!  But I got a few good pics 🙂

“Serena Williams once told me that I could be better than her one day.  Since then I’ve been training to be the BEST EVER” -Kalli

I actually grew up with friends and family who taught & played some serious tennis… but unfortunately, I never picked it up.  Certainly can appreciate the practice & talent that goes into the sport.

Playing since the age of six… this WonderGirl is ready to take the world of tennis by storm!  And her supportive father and Mayor Aja Brown is right there by her side. 🙂 Check out her AMAZING story presented by the Tennis Channel!:
