NEW PODCAST: Brenda Schultz-McCarthy - Former Professional Tennis Player

THIS IS THE SPORTS SPECTRUM PODCAST

Brenda Schultz-McCarthy is a former professional tennis player, who made her pro debut in September 1986 at the age of 15.

In her 20-year pro career, Schultz-McCarthy had 16 WTA titles, including wins over Venus Williams, Lindsay Davenport and Monica Seles. She is known for her fast serve, and in July 2006 she claimed her place as the fastest server in WTA history, recording a 130 mph serve in the first round of an event in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Her career saw her reach the finals of the French Open in 1988 and the U.S. Open in 1995 in the doubles competition. Her highest ranking was No. 9 overall in May 1996.

Schultz-McCarthy is currently involved with her non-profit, TedsFoundation, whose mission is to teach people how to holistically approach their health and way of living.

Today on the podcast, we talk to Schultz-McCarthy about growing up in Holland, her journey as a professional tennis player, the major health scare she had in 2011 giving birth to her son, Damian, and the role her faith in the Lord plays in her life.
