1. You’re looking at the new champ! When Taylor became the latest winner of the BNP Paribas Open, it was no small feat. He took down the legendary Rafael Nadal, becoming the first player to beat Rafa this year!
  2. Living a childhood dream…No REALLY! Taylor grew up just a few hours from the Indian Wells Tennis Garden where he won the title this weekend. His family would often attend matches there, and Taylor’s dad even told him he’d one day win that title!
  3. What’s a win without a little history? Believe it or not, Taylor’s actually the first American to win the Indian Wells Singles Title since wayyy back in 2001! To put things in perspective, Taylor was just a toddler back then.
  4. It’s the family business. Yes, Taylor does in fact come from a family of tennis players. His mom, Kathy May, even ranked Top 10 in the world at one point during her career in the 1970s!
  5. He’s good at virtual tennis, too. Back in 2020, Taylor competed in a Mario Tennis Tourney alongside influencer Addison Rae as part of the Stay At Home Slam. The duo of course brought home the championship, winning a $1M donation for No Kid Hungry!
