Alexa Guarachi, fresh off the WTA Finals in Guadalajara, is one of the top doubles players on the pro tour.

In this episode, I chat with the world #13 about competing on the pro tour, her background, and doubles strategy.

This is a short conversation that you can learn a lot from, including:

  • How always smiling helps Alexa play better doubles, and what showing frustration does for an opponent.
  • How to use playing with a lefty to your strategic advantage.
  • How to handle deciding “no-ad” points when you’re returning and serving.

We also discuss what it was like for her to play in the altitude (Guadalajara is 5,200 feet), her plans for the 2022 season, and more.
