About Thijs Roper

Thijs is a highly athletic and agile player who is quick around the court. He has consistent groundstrokes and is best at wearing out his opponents, both mentally and physically. Besides being a top tennis player, Thijs plays for the national Padel team, making his touch and volleys exceptional. Thijs is looking to find a team where he can become stronger physically to be able to hit the ball harder so he can put his strong net play to good use. 

Thijs has mainly competed in national junior play at the highest level, as well as in regional men’s tournaments and league play. Only being 16 years old, Thijs will be young coming into college. However, he is an extremely motivated, dedicated and mature young man, and we think he can make great leaps in the college environment.

UTR Profile – As a consequence of Covid-19, Thijs was, and still is, unable to compete in tournaments. He has improved a lot since early 2020 and we are convinced he will grow significantly college.
