Some other fans were watching as well, including Young Athletes United.
And after that thrilling finals match against Emma Raducanu, they knew they had found the one. Their own Neo.
Leyla took a great step forward in her tennis career last year.
In March she won the Monteray Open by defeating Viktorija Golubic, 6–1, 6–4.
In August she made her memorable run through the U.S. Open before falling to Emma Raducanu in their exciting finals match.
For her efforts, Fernandez was named the 2021 Canadian Press Athlete of the Year.
That’s the type of athlete you want to associate with.
But to be a brand ambassador and face of a company, you must be more than an athlete. You must represent the ideals and values of that organization.
After speaking with Leylah, you understand why she was the perfect fit for Young Athletes United.
