Rodrigo Schtscherbyna was born and raised in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and started his athletic career as a swimmer. Thanks to his dad, an avid tennis player, Rodrigo became so passionate for tennis he decided to jump out the water even after achieving a few national titles.

In ‘02, Rodrigo was offered a position at Winthrop University in South Carolina to coach the NCAA Division I Woman’s Tennis Team and, at the same time, to get a MBA degree. After getting his degree he decided to take on a bigger challenge. Once he heard: If you can make it in New York, you can make it anywhere!!!
