Wilson Proudly Presents our Keynote Speaker
We wanted to share some exciting news about the 2016 TTCA convention. This year’s guest speaker will be Eric Butorac, a current ATP player who is currently ranked in the Top 40 in the world in doubles! Eric has competed on the ATP tour for the past decade, winning 18 ATP doubles titles along the way. He reached the finals of the 2014 Australian Open and the semi-finals of the French and US Open mixed doubles. He has career doubles wins over Rafael Nadal, Andy Murray and the Bryan Brothers. He spent eight years on the ATP Player Council and in 2014, succeeded Roger Federer as President. A three-time ITA All-American while playing for Gustavus Adolphus College, Eric won the NCAA DIII Singles and Doubles Championships as well as the 2003 National Arthur Ashe Sportsmanship Award. He also spent four seasons as the volunteer assistant coach at Harvard University.
We are looking forward to seeing you at this year’s convention. Thanks for your support of Wilson products.
