In our last Pro’s Perspective Article we were unable to include our phenom Ektelon player – Jose Rojas. Here is his story:
I feel like I ended 2010 on a great note, making almost every quarter and a semi. I do wish I could have done much better in Colombia, but even then I felt as my ankle was going to fall off. I really had no control over that. After the US Open,which I didn’t play at my best, I felt as if I could do much better than what I have been and proved it at the next tournament in Chihuahua. That has to be my highlight of 2010 when I made the Semi and came really close to making the first final in my career, losing in 5 to Alvaro Beltran. I am really looking forward to the next half of the season in 2011 as I feel stronger and more confident then ever. Although the month of January has been pretty much a slump for me losing in the 16′s 2 out of the three tournaments, I still feel mentally stronger than I did in Chihuahua.
