E66 - Andy Ram (Tennis Legend, Official Wimbledon Champion 2006)

In this special episode, we’re pleased to have Andy Ram as our guest. Andy made history by becoming the first Israeli tennis player to win a senior Grand Slam event. He achieved this feat at Wimbledon in 2006. His winning streak includes the French Open mixed doubles title and the men's doubles title at the Australian Open. He achieved a World No. 5 doubles ranking in July 2008. Throughout his career, he represented Israel at multiple Summer Olympics, and competed in 36 doubles finals, triumphing in 20 of them, often partnering with Jonathan Erlich, together known in Israel as "AndiYoni." Andy's success on the court is just the beginning of his incredible story. As a former Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) soldier, Andy used his platform as a tennis player to raise awareness and support for the IDF soldiers and their families. He's also dedicated himself to promoting peace and coexistence between Israelis and Palestinians through tennis. In these turbulent days, we discuss: • Resilience and hope in Israel amidst conflict • Overcoming obstacles to becoming a top tennis player despite not being a super talent (Andy’s words not ours!) or coming from a wealthy background. • Resilience and failure in sports and life • The importance of leaning on people for support during tough times • Finding solutions to problems through conversations and maintaining a positive outlook. • Positive thinking and energy management • Passion, discipline, and belief in achieving success • Overcoming challenges • And much more Enjoy your listen!
