Reasons behind the project
At the dawn of a most promising career, Félix wishes to combine his performance with a personal commitment, one linked to his family background and his education, one that goes beyond just playing tennis.
Félix’s objective is to give meaning to his career and have a positive impact that reaches further than the tennis courts.
He has therefore decided to commit himself to a cause that is close to his heart: building a better future for the younger generations in Togo, his father’s home country
I would like to give meaning to my career as a professional tennis player. Tennis is an incredible sport that has taught me - and continues to teach me - many things, including hard work, perseverance and humility. I want to take these values beyond the tennis court where they can have a positive impact. Yes, I am a tennis player, but I’m also a citizen of the world. I want to contribute to the future of young generations, especially the most disadvantaged, and I am happy to be able to do so through tennis
