Max (15) arrived in Australia 10 years ago with his parents and holds Australian and Swedish citizenship.

He started playing tennis fours years ago and discovered a natural talent for the game.

He aspires to become a professional player, according to mum Rebecca Tolstoy.

‘He played hockey in primary school when we arrived,’ she said.

In four years, under coach Mark Leuba, Max has earned a ranking good enough to represent Australia internationally.
