Allie Kiick is in town playing at Stratford Academy this week in the USTA Macon Tennis Championships.

She is currently ranked 262nd in the world and aiming to get down about 20 slots to qualify for the Australian Open. A win in Macon or even an appearance in the finals would help out.

As for her famous father Allie says her Dad, Jim is very supportive but cheers "more like a football player." So he roots her on from a distance and isn't expected to fly into Central Georgia this week.

The tournament lasts through the weekend. It will cost you five bucks to get in to watch the professionals.
