Nadia Abdala played four years at Arizona State University before playing professionally on the WTA tour reaching a career-high of # 517. Since 2014 she has served as the Assistant Women’s Coach at the University of San Diego.
Clarisse Baca was a standout player at Sacramento State, helping her team to four straight Big Sky Conference Championships, and was herself a four-time All-Big Sky selection. She is now the head women’s coach at the Academy of Art where she helped the program reach its highest national ranking in program history (# 5) in 2019.
Both Clarisse & Nadia were born and raised in Mexico and have known one another since their early days in the sport of tennis. In this podcast we discuss their experiences moving to the USA and their transition to college coaching. They also share details about an exciting new initiative they have developed named the Latina Tennis Coach Association.
