Commitment Announcement
Countdown: Eric Tseng to UCSD
Share:   

Eric Tseng had realistic expectations for his future when it came to tennis.

Eric Tseng is heading to UCSD
The Irvine resident knew the sport could only take him so far. But he also knew it would be far enough to make a huge impact on his life.

"From the very beginning, I knew that I didn't want to become like a pro," Tseng said. "But I wanted to use tennis to get into a good academic college that I might not be able to get into otherwise, so that has always been a motivating factor for me."

Tseng accomplished his goal. The four-star recruit signed to play at UC San Diego during the early signing period last November.

Location was an important factor in Tseng's choice.

He wanted to stay in sunny Southern California so he could enjoy the weather and remain close to his family.

Once Tseng discovered UCSD had the cognitive science major he wanted, his decision became a no-brainer.

"It's a good balance between academics and tennis," said Tseng, a University High senior with a 3.6 GPA and a 2100 SAT score. "I think I have a good chance of making the lineup, and it's in a good location so I can still travel back home on the weekends. I am really close with my family."

Tseng started playing tennis when he was 6. He quit the sport for a couple of years to play basketball, but picked up a racket again once his family moved to Irvine when he was 11.

His mother brought Tseng to the Woodbridge Tennis Club to work with Chuck Brymer and Chris Lewis.

"I have been training there for the last six years and that is what has really helped motivate me to get a lot better," Tseng said. "I started going to a lot more tournaments and my dad and mom really got involved. They come with me to tournaments and my dad is always at practice critiquing what I am doing wrong and right."
