Welcome to WillBoe.com, the official site of American-Norwegian professional tennis player, William Boe-Wiegaard.
MONTABAUN, FRANCE - 6/27/11
In two weeks, Will will offially be listed as a world ranked professional tennis player after winning his first ATP ranking point by defeating world #499, Frenchmen Fabrice Martin, 7-5, 6-3 in the round of 32 at the $15,000+H ITF Future event on red clay in Montabaun, France. Will said that "After winning the 2006 DIII NCAA singles title at 22, I wanted to become a pro player. Now that I've finally done that at 27, I want to move as high up the pro ranking ladder as possible before my body says, 'no mas.'" With some of the top players in the world like Andre Agassi playing well into their mid-30s, Will says, "I feel like I've got plenty of time and a lot of energy left in the tank. The only question I have is whether or not I can find good players to train with on a consistent basis, because up to this point, I've really only been able to randmoly hit with players while at the tournaments...an hour here and a warm-up there kind of stuff. It's been incredibly difficult to find a professional training environment where I can really fine tune my game efficently. I even went to IMG in Bradenton and Nick told me I had what it takes to be top 100, but I would need 100-150K and two years of professional training to do it. That was a year ago and I still don't have the training enviornment I want and need, but I'm hopeful that an opportunity is coming soon now that I have a world ranking. Maybe the USTA will help me now, but I won't hold my breath." Will's next event will be next week in Bourg-en-Bresse, France for another $10,000 ITF Future on clay, after which he will head back to the US and Canada for Futures and Challengers.

Will Wins NCAA Crown
KONYA, TURKEY - 6/10/12
Will reached his first professional level doubles final parterning with Irish Davis Cup player, Daniel Glancy while playing the $10,000 ITF Future in Konya, Turkey. "It was an incredible feeling playing in my first doubles final, especially with Daniel, because he's such a great person with fantastic tennis talent and a brillant sense of humor. I am definitely looking forward to seeing him again on tour and maybe we can even try to play doubles again, but next time we'll win the title!" said Will.
Finally in the Finals
Not only is Will passionate about tennis, but he is passionate about helping people; especially those living in the poorest parts of the world. Nearly a billion people do NOT have access to clean drinking water. "With the amount of wealth, education, connectivity, and technology we have today, I find it alarming and quite frankly disturbing that one of the most essential needs that any human being has isn't being met for every person alive today. Charitywater.org is doing incredible work and I hope my tennis can help raise some awareness to this very important organization and help them conquer this solvable problem,” said Will. He even started his own online fundraising campaign, which anyone can do thanks to CharityWater.org. To learn more about his Chairtywater campagin click here.

Will Wins 20th ATP point
KIEV, UKRAINE - 6/11/14
Will won his 20th ATP world ranking point in singles today after defeating 16 year old, Ukrainian wild card, Denys Gavel, 6-2, 6-4 in the round of 32 at the $10,000 ITF Future event in Kiev, Ukraine. Will said that "Despite windy conditions, which is always an equalizer, I was lucky enough to come out on top this time. Denys is very young and has plenty of time to develop into a great player one day. I hope the wind will stop before tomorrow's match.'" Will now plays former 1100 in the world, 24 year old Ukrainian, Dmytro Kamynin, for a chance to move into the quarterfinals.
HAMBURG, GERMANY - 6/1/14
Since January, Will has been a member of a German club team in the North. Will plays #3 singles and #1 doubles (partnering with Florian Barth). Will has finally found his form winning several German club matches in singles and doubles. He struggled to perform on the speedy indoor carpet courts during the indoor season (January-February), but with a forehand grip change and some great training with the team, he's performing much better during the outdoor season (May-June) on the higher bouncing, slower red clay that demands more from his athletism. "I think changing my forehand grip towards being more eastern has made a significant impact in the way I can hit through the ball and attack shorter, softer balls. Would have been nice to have made this adjustment earlier during the indoor season, but, better late than never. Now, it will be all about fine tuning the stroke," says Will. He will have an extra tricky traveling schedule in June because he will have to go back and forth every weekend between the hard court Futures in Ukraine and the clay court club matches in Hamburg.
