In short, a phenomenal college tennis career. When he graduated, Kudzai was offered the coveted Tennis Graduate Assistant position at Prairie View.
Following graduation and coaching on the college level, Kudzai took his vast college tennis experience, knowledge, love of the game and applied that to teaching the next generation of tennis players in Houston.
