Tennis is, pardon the pun, a tough racket. But Winston-Salem’s Mariana Hollman has a pretty good grip on it. The United States Tennis Association this year selected Hollman to the Margaret Court Cup Team competing in the Senior World Team Championships in Mexico City in March, the ninth time it has done so. Hollman’s feats on the court include wins in national and international singles and doubles competition on grass, clay and hard court. She currently plays out of the Adams Farm Swim and Tennis Club and is the acting women’s tennis coach at Salem College, and if your game is struggling, you should probably try to hire her.
