Aye Unnoppet grew up in a tennis-playing family who competed on the grandest stage – at the National Tennis Center in Flushing Meadows, New York.

They annually took part in the Equitable Family Tennis Challenge and Aye, the middle of three children, advanced to the Big Apple three times – first with her younger brother Nop, then her mother, Urai, and finally with her father, Kumjad.

“As a kid it was pretty special because that’s something that you always looked up to,” she recalled. “You watch it on TV and all of a sudden we get this all-expenses-paid trip to actually play there.”
