Being at the top is always worth a headline, but what about how you actually get there? As part of an insightful series with several athletes, this time we put the limelight on the daily routine of two up and coming Tennis players - 16-year-old Alicia and 14-year-old Tyra Black. The video series takes a look behind the scenes and dreams of the Black sisters with a very different approach: Even though Alicia and Tyra share the same goal of becoming tennis professionals and winning a Grand Slam tournament, they have very different personalities and style of plays.

Their passion for sport has been inherited: Growing up in an athletic household – their mom was a national swimmer in high school, their dad a former Davis Cup player and three-time Gold medal winner at the 1993 Pan Am Games – the sisters’ day is dominated by tennis, both on and off the court. While it takes a lot of hard work, practice and a strong will to reach their goals, the video series clearly shows that the two up and coming tennis players “live, sleep and breathe tennis” in a very different way. After all, there is more than one way to the top.
