Even as a young boy, Gift had a love for tennis and at just 10 years of age he convinced a friend to let him try his hand at the game. This was his first introduction to the sport and not surprisingly, Gift has loved it ever since, maintaining a twice weekly discipline to learn and slowly master the game. Gift has a good mix of passion and determination and these attributes coupled with his raw talent, are leading this young man to top international player status.
