Early Life

Kenin drew inspiration from her father to play tennis at the age of five as her father played tennis for recreation. Her parents quickly realized her potential and put her to training in Florida. Rick Macci coached her for seven years.

He remarked:

"Back then [when Kenin was five], I came right out and said Sofia was the scariest little creature I’d ever seen. It was unique: the hand-eye coordination and her ability to take the ball immediately right after the bounce. I have a lot of kids do that, but it was almost like it was baked in already, even though she was little, and the racket was bigger than her. The only player I’ve seen like that is [former world No. 1] Martina Hingis".

At the age of 14, Kenin started playing tennis as her career. But her journey of tennis began only after winning the 2015 USTA International Spring Championships. She also won the USTA Girls' 18s national championship. The same year she made her debut at the 2015 US Open and reached the final at the junior event at the US Open.
