Tennis beginnings

Kartal first started playing tennis at the age of six at Pavillion & Avenue Tennis Club, where she still trains to this day.

Her first memory of tennis was when she was first brought on court to meet her current coach, Julie Hobbs, falling over and being too scared to come back. But after much persuasion, Hobbs managed to convince her to come back and the two have been inseparable ever since.
