A product of the Junior Tennis Champions Center in Maryland, Robin has already won seven ITF career titles, including singles and doubles categories.

When Robin was four, Gabrielle often took her daughter to 16th and Kennedy Street in Washington, where the Citi Open is held. As many parents used to bring their young children to practice tennis, she also started coaching Robin there.

She later enrolled Robin at the Turkey Thicket Recreation Center in Washington, D.C., a JTCC NJTL program.

Gabrielle was happy when Robin received a scholarship to train alongside budding tennis players like Frances Tiafoe at JTCC in College Park.

She drove her daughter to Maryland every morning and dropped her at JTCC to train with senior coach Ali Agnamba. Gabrielle says her favorite moment is watching her daughter playing her game freely on the court.

Although she does not get many chances to travel with Robin, she says she watches every game on T.V. Furthermore, she is proud of what her daughter has achieved in the international tennis arena.

Living within the training facility, Tiafoe began practicing tennis in the early 2000s, where Robin joined as a young girl around 2010. Consequently, the two developed an incredible bond over the years, after which Robin started treating him like her brother.

Frances is among the most successful male tennis players worldwide and currently stands at No. 11 in the world rankings.

In her recent interview with the WTA Tour magazine, Robin said she was proud of Tiafoe and was happy to see him succeed in the international tennis scene.
