Alexandre Sokolowski

Born in Paris, Alexandre fell in love with tennis at the age of 6, watching countryman Henri Leconte reach the semi-finals of the 1992 French Open as a wild card. Although he’s far from being as gifted as Leconte, his journey in tennis still led him to visit the four Grand Slam tournaments, as a coach or a sparring-partner. In 2009, he was the co-founder of a fan blog which became one of the main French tennis websites, Tennis Legend, while teaching tennis in several clubs in Paris area. He joined the Tennis Majors team in April 2020.
