#CelebrityBTR– “I grew up in a family who were very sports focused. My dad and brothers were pitchers and quarterbacks. I was terrible at every single sport, just awful, and I’m by far the tallest and biggest in my family so it was just really confusing. My parents worked extremely hard to make sure my brothers and I grew up as well-rounded as possible, which is why they had me play every single sport. I played one-year football, one year baseball, JV lacrosse, Jv mountain climbing and even some tennis in high school. I distinctly remember my dad coming out onto the field during a baseball game, pulled me off of the right field, and told me that this was not my sport, which was super embarrassing and terrible, but looking back it made sense. My wife and I try to get involved in as many opportunities to help kids as possible. We look for charities that are run by good people and where the funding actually goes to the right places. We were introduced to the USTA and were excited about everything they are doing in helping improve the lives of less fortunate kids through tennis and education. We thought it made total sense and we’ve been involved the last couple years which has been great. We are lucky to be involved as it brought us to the US Open and just being in ‪Arthur Ashe Stadium‬ is a cool experience, it’s like a football stadium. I’ve shown a few tennis players homes in the past but have never sold a home to a tennis player. I believe our firm sold Serena Williams her home in Los Angeles. Anytime I’ve ever had a showing with a professional athlete, there’s always paparazzi and people around. There’s a lot of entertainment value to what they do because their performance is on a global level with both streaming and mobile platforms and with many more people having access to the US Open now more than ever before. It’s a luxury to go to the stadium and watch it, but you can watch it on your phone in any country in the world. That’s why we help as many young kids as possible get into the sport because they’re more aware of it and they understand the sport more…” @ryanserhant
