Tennis star Christopher Eubanks had an impressive collegiate career as a member of the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets. He achieved the remarkable feat of being named a two-time All-American and was also honored as the ACC Player of the Year twice.
Fans are eager to delve deeper into the life and family background of this talented 27-year-old professional athlete.
Who Are Christopher Eubanks’s Parents?
Christopher Eubanks was born on May 5, 1996, in Atlanta, Georgia. His parents, Chris Eubanks Sr. and Carla Eubanks, raised him. Chris Sr. is a Baptist minister and taught his kids how to play tennis all the time.
Christopher told the Daily Mail, “I had an older brother that played tennis and my dad was involved with my brother [Mark] when I came along,”
‘When I got to the age where I could run and swing a racket, my dad put one in my hand. It just kind of went from there doing the normal route of playing local tournaments and junior tournaments and just trying to work my way up.”
Christopher didn’t start working with pro tennis player Donald Young and his family until he was 13 years old.
“His parents, when they moved down to Atlanta from Chicago, ran a tennis facility about five minutes from my house. I was about 7 or 8 at the time. My dad was coaching me right up until I was about 13. Then he didn’t really have the time as much because he was working a lot,” Christopher told USTA in a 2016 interview.
“So, after school, he told me—I was a freshman in high school at the time—that I would be picked up by his parents, who run an after-school program, and that I would work with the kids at the program.”
“Afterward, I’d be able to practice with Donald when he was in town. And when he wasn’t in town, his dad would teach me. That’s when I started going there five days a week, sometimes six.”
Christopher, on the other hand, says that he got his core values from his parents.
Eubanks told the ATP Tour, “I think that’s probably the biggest, all-encompassing theme of how I try to go about life, is just treating others the way you want to be treated,”
“And oftentimes I find that in sport, we find stories of great athletes who are just killer competitors, who are, killer mindset all the time.”
“And [at] times in sport, it’s good. But for me, that mindset going off of the court doesn’t really mesh well with my personality.”
