Alfred Kandakai Jr.
Originally from Monrovia, Liberia (West Africa), Alfred Kandakai Jr. started playing tennis at the age of 5 years old. The love and passion he has for the game of tennis made his father put time into developing him at an incredibly early age, which later made him the player and coach he is today. Alfred played at the high school and currently plays at the college level. He strongly believes that “ as a student of the game you must be willing to work as hard as you can because that motivates coaches to go beyond their limits to help you succeed”. Aside from playing, Alfred truly enjoys teaching the sport and excels in his role at Windsor Tennis Club.
