Toby Penty - Dealing With Alopecia & Getting Past That Final Hurdle

Toby Penty - Dealing With Alopecia & Getting Past That Final Hurdle

July 8, 2021

I love this episode a lot as I really find Toby's story so inspiring. Having to deal with a full loss of all his hair on his entire body with all the mental issues it brings along with it and trying to be the best version of yourself on court certainly haven't been easy for him.

But he says himself he's now at a better place than he even was before being diagnosed with alopecia - get the full reason why in this episode.

Lots of other interesting topics as well, like why he's training most of the time at his own club, Wimbledon, instead of the national centre in Milton Keynes. 

We also go into the story behind his rather odd finals statistics at internatonal level where he started off 0 for 6, but then reeled off 5 straight wins!

All this and much more in this 1-hour episode. I really hope you guys enjoy it as much as I enjoyed chatting to Toby.

Thanks for listening and please consider showing this podcast a little love by supporting on patreon.com/vittinghus if you enjoy what you hear!
