The 18-year-old, from Fenwick has had a hard year, competing and training all over the world as well as finishing his last year of school.

Ewan was offered a scholarship with Merchiston Castle School, where he was part of the prestigious Scottish Tennis Academy. With his gruelling training and tournament schedule picking up, he decided to finish his last year of study towards his A levels online. This would allow him more time to increase his senior rankings and possibly consider the chance to go to America and study abroad on a Tennis Scholarship with a top US College. Some of the world’s top players have done the same, and although his aim is to go Professional as soon as he can, a few years learning and training in America may be the best thing for him and it allows him to keep a few more options up his sleeve.
Ewan travels around the world with his coach in order to ensure his game and performance levels remain as high as they can. He also spends a great deal of time alone, meaning he has to be mentally strong in order to sustain his focused composure.
He spends a great deal of time training abroad in order to adjust to different climates and surfaces. It’s not easy for any teenager to commit to a 6-day a week training and school regime, but Ewan manages it. His determination in his regime is what will ultimately make his journey to becoming a top athlete in Tennis achievable.
Having already competed in this seasons Australian and French Open, Ewan is aiming for his second appearance at Wimbledon. Having just completed in the Roehampton, he is ready and determined to make sure he can secure a place in this year’s tournament.
Ewan is part of the QTS Youth Athlete Programme, which is an initiative the company created to support new athletes who are trying to make it in their chosen sport. As part of this programme Ewan receives some much needed support to help him achieve his sporting dreams.
Ewan also recently played in the Legends of Tennis event at Gleneagles last month alongside names like Tim Henman and Greg Rusedski. This is a great way for Ewan to promote himself and it’s a great achievement to be recognised as being worthy of playing with and against such names at the age of 18.
With the added workload involved with his final year of school, Ewan hasn’t had the same run of success that had been used to over the past few years. The understandable pressures of exams have given him the chance to take a step back and reevaluate his performance to ensure he brings his A game from now on.
Ewan has just secured a wildcard place for the Main Draw at this year’s Juniors Tournament at Wimbledon. This will be his second year competing in the 18 and under matches against some of the world’s finest.
It’s not going to be an easy journey for Ewan, but one things for sure, he’s going to do all he can to go all the way to the top. He’s a hardworking, determined and driven athlete who wants to make his mark in Tennis. We don’t think it will be long before we hear the “Come on, Ewan” chants coming from SW19.
