Women’s Tennis

Junior Ariana Mitra is helping lead the Tigers to an impressive 8-2 start to the season. She is usually paired with fellow varsity returnee, Sophie Mallaro in doubles matches.


How is the chemistry between you and Sophie?

We love each other; we get along great. We’re always laughing on and off the court. We have inside jokes and stuff.


Who is your biggest inspiration on or off the court?

Probably my brother. When I was a kid, I thought he was the best tennis player in the world, and I wanted to be just like him. He coaches me and always helps me with my game and knows exactly what to say.


How did you get into tennis? 

I started when I was six years old. I kind of copied my brother. He started and I wanted to be like him, so I started taking lessons and got really into it.


Do you want to continue with tennis in the rest of your life?

I want to try to play club tennis in college, and when I’m older, maybe try to join an adult league or something like that.
