Today on the podcast I sync up with U.S Professional Tennis Player and Coach, Danielle Lao aka Little Giant on Instagram, avid runner and Hoka Ambassador. Danielle and I sync up about where her career in tennis began and how she has not put her professional tennis career on hold while coaching and pursuing her passion for running, which is fueling her for success! Danielle has won three singles titles and three doubles titles on the ITF Women’s Circuit . She achieved a career-high singles ranking of 152 by the WTA on April 1, 2019 . Lao competed for the USC Trojans where she was a two-time All-American and team captain . She won the 2008 USTA National Open. Her current ranking: No. 409 (July 3, 2023) She has also competed in the Grand Slam singles Australian Open: Q3 (2019, 2020); French Open: Q1 (2018, 2019, 2021); Wimbledon: 1R (2021). In 2013, she co-authored a top-selling tennis book with Rick Limpert called The Invaluable Experience . In the book, Lao takes readers through her college tennis career and shows why playing a sport in college might be the best decision you could ever make.
