Born in Saudi Arabia and currently residing in the United States, young Michael has made a name for himself on the junior ITF circuit. He reached a career-high ITF junior ranking of No. 2 in August of 2015, and won the boys’ singles title in Roehampton, Great Britain in July. In pro tournaments, he won the title at the Lewis and Clark Pro Tennis Classic (USA F22 Futures) later that same month. A year earlier in 2014, he competed in the main draw of the US Open as a wild card in men’s doubles at age 16. He would proceed to make it into the men’s singles qualifiers at the North American Grand Slam tournament in 2015.
