Where Are They Now?
Conversation with Ken Kigongo

Everyone in tennis seems to have an opinion about whether the top junior players should opt to play college tennis or jump straight to the professional ranks. One interesting voice in the crowd is that of Ken Kigongo - the former standout at Michigan State. Kigongo decided to stay at Michigan State all four years to complete his degree, and there are some interesting circumstances behind his decision.

Kigongo was ranked in the Top 20 nationally as a junior, competing in the top USTA tournaments throughout the country. He was bothered by injuries in college, but he still rose to #2 in the ITA doubles rankings.

I got to chat with Kigongo this summer about all things tennis - but especially his decision to get his college degree.
