My personal interaction with the many generous people involved in organizing and planning these events, as well as the pure joy I experience as a result of my personal participation, have combined to provide me with a wealth of emotional fulfillment.
My desire to enable the children of our world to realize their own dreams prompted me to form the Justin Gimelstob Children’s Fund.
Tennis has provided me with an unparalleled opportunity to travel around the world, explore new cultures, and experience the excitement and challenges that this sport presents.
Through the high points and low points of my career, I have remained tremendously grateful for these experiences and I feel truly blessed.
I am well aware of how fortunate I am to have been able to make a living playing a sport I love.
I’ve traveled the world while playing against and with some of the best athletes in the world, experiencing things I could only dream of when I first picked up a tennis racquet at 7 years old.I’ve spent a lot of time at Saint Barnabas Hospital with the children of The Valerie Fund, and to see young people sick is one of this world’s cruelest realities.
