Ewan Mah is a former tennis coach and player who was part of the national tennis team back in the late 90s. A graduate in Creative Writing and Literature, he's spent 3 years in radio.
This 31 year-old loves comedies, space operas, fantasy, and super hero movies. He's also into books, graphic novels and of course, watching all sorts of sports. He'll also tell you he doesn't know where he finds time to do all of these things on top of trying to get in an odd game of tennis.
Ewan's claim to fame is that he once had the same racket stringer as the great Pete Sampras. He also knew a guy who once beat Jim Courier.
Now a seasoned radio reporter, he's has begun writing for the TODAY Newspaper and might appear on Channel News Asia very soon.
Having met and spoken to many sports personalities over the years, Ewan will tell you that all the famous athletes, coaches and managers are just like you and I and are rather down to earth. Most would rather you speak to them as a person rather than as a fan and that they're always happy to share a joke or two with you.
