Growing up in Westhampton, NJ, Jana Zollner began playing tennis at the early age of 5 years old. These days, Zollner is spending plenty of time on the court, standing out with her play and modeling her game after her favorite player, Madison Keys. We were able to catch up with Jana Zollner and ask her a few tennis related questions!
Name – Jana Zollner
Hometown – Westhampton, NJ
Started playing tennis – Age 5
Favorite player – Madison Keys. I got her autograph at last year’s Arthur Ashe Kids Day!
Favorite food – Gluten free pasta, I always have it before every match or tournament.
Favorite stroke – Forehand crosscourt shot.
Both of my racquet types have a light feel. I play with the Wilson Pro Staff 97 Countervail so I have a lighter racquet feel but more power. I also have the play test prototype version of the Clash and I love it!
Favorite surface to play on – Har-tru because slices are effective and you can slide easier. I mainly play on hard court.
Singles or Doubles – I am definitely a singles player. Occasionally I play doubles in tournaments and for Junior Team Tennis.
Favorite Tennis Memory -I have many tennis memories between USTA and the high school tennis season. This past summer I won my very first USTA tournament as an unseeded player.
