Diede de Groot
world champion wheelchair tennis

Diede de Groot

Diede de Groot fully lives up to her name, for what a great wheelchair tennisplayer she is. In 2015 Diede turned professional and ever since she has astonished friend and foe with her results.

Living in Oudewater, Netherlands, Diede stormed at international rankings, resulting in number one positions in both singles and doubles. In addition she won various titles at Australian Open, Roland Garros, Wimbledon, US open, Dutch National and World Championships. And Diede is hopeful to add Paralympic gold to her wonderful list of achievements.

But apart from her sporting mission, Diede also has a mission to prove that being disabled need not mean feeling handicapped. As an ambassador for the Esther Vergeer Foundation, the Disabled Sports Fund and KNLTB she hopes to stimulate as many people possible, both disabled and able-bodied, to participate actively in sports.
