Blair Henley has been involved in tennis from a young age, and was one of Rice University’s most successful players, where she held the No. 1 spot in singles and doubles and helped lead the team to the 2006 Conference USA Championship, an NCAA team tournament berth, and a spot in the NCAA individual singles tourney. Now, she serves as an assistant coach for the Rice team, which reached a national ranking of No. 20. But her impact on tennis goes well beyond Rice; she’s involved with Houston’s NJTL community, is a USPTA certified pro, and helped build and promote the Galleria Tennis and Athletic Club. In addition, Henley keeps tennis top of mind for consumers by writing and reporting about the sport for ESPNW.com, World Tennis Magazine, TennisRecruiting.net and TennisNow. Recently, Henley wrote a series of doping stories for TennisNow that helped lead top players to demand the ITF change its procedures for testing.
