Jehlani Danlahdi Robinson
Junior Development, Tournament Team, ITP, FACES
Danlahdi is a born and raised New Yorker hailing from Queens. He has been playing since he was young, under the guidance of his father and the coaches at NYJTL. He competed in the NYJTL Mayor’s Cup, winning two years in a row for Brooklyn Tech High School, overcoming rivals Horace Mann in a tense final match during his freshman year. This success brought him to further competition in Division 1 College Tennis for St. Francis in Brooklyn Heights. After coaching for two years a the College of Staten Island, Danlahdi joined the Cary Leeds Center where he trains players in Junior Development, Tournament Team, ITP, and FACES. He finds that connecting with the kids is just as important as the tennis instruction itself, and aims to find a balance between having fun and working hard.
