Top-ranked wheelchair tennis player to compete in Mission Viejo
Shingo Kunieda is looking to capture the Double Masters title that eluded him last year when he returns to the UNIQLO Wheelchair Doubles Masters in Mission Viejo November 5-9.
The 30-year-old competitor from Japan is currently the top-ranked singles player. He ranks second in doubles. Kunieda has more than 50 career titles under his belt along with two gold medals for singles in the 2008 and 2012 Paralympic games, along with winning a gold medal for doubles with his partner Satoshi Saida in the 2008 Paralympic games.
Kunieda became paralyzed in the lower half of his body when a tumor formed in his spinal cord at the age of 9. Two years later, he began his wheelchair tennis career and quickly became Japan’s first professional wheelchair tennis player.
