"For 15 years wheelchair tennis gave me so many fantastic memories and opportunities, and made so many of my dreams come true. When the ITF asked me to be an ambassador for this incredible sport, it was my honour to accept, and I'll do my very best to promote it in any way that I can."
- David Hall
