Nayram traveled to Spain with his dad Cyril Gadegbeku, who believes this can be a life-changing experience for the young tennis player.

“I wanted to give him the opportunity of seeing how the professionals on the ATP tour do it. It’s has been his dream to see his role models playing and for him to experience the atmosphere they play and the tension that comes with it. For him to see how these athletes are idolized. Ultimately to motivate him to train harder,” he told Joy Sports.

Nayram shared his experiences at the Barcelona Open with Joy Sports in the video below.
