Scholar, athlete, musician … Kylan Tatum ’21 needs at least an extra ten hours a week to pursue his passions. What would he pick first? Find out this and more in 5 Questions 4.
 
You earned a spot on the NJ.com All-Prep Boys’ Tennis Team (in doubles) last spring. What’s the strongest part of your game and what do you feel you need to work on?
I think that the strongest part of my game is my speed, consistency, and ability to stay calm no matter the score of the match. I feel that I need to work on my volleys and second serves, as these are the two parts of my game that are not as consistent as the rest. In addition, I am trying to find a balance between increasing power on my ground strokes and maintaining consistency.
 
If you had ten extra hours a week you would spend them doing … what?
I would spend them reading and learning new languages. I love to read, however I don’t have much time anymore to do so. So, if I had ten extra hours a week, I would likely spend half of them reading. The other half, I would spend learning languages. Languages fascinate me and are essential to communicating with people around the globe, so I would love to learn a few more.
