Townsville’s Lizette Cabrera is one of Aussie tennis’ brightest stars. This year she will play in her first ever Australian Open. For Cabrera it’s a dream come true after years of hard work and sacrifices from both her and her family.
“Obviously it’s everything to me. As an athlete my dream is to represent my country for my sport and to be able to have the opportunity to do that at the Australian Open is crazy.”
Cabrera rocketed up the rankings last year, moving from outside the top 1000 to 214.
We join the bubbly Queenslander as she makes her final preparations for her first ever Grand Slam appearance.
