Petros Chrysochos – 2018 NCAA Champion, Wake Forest (Episode #37)

Petros Chrysochos grew up in Cyprus, inspired by Marcos Baghdatis to pursue tennis to his full potential. His coach, Demetris Herodotou, was a strong influence in his development, taking him from a beginner to the top of Tennis Europe. Petros was named the 2012 Tennis Europe Player of the Year.
