Audrey is a North Miami Beach native, who grew up playing tennis all over the country and playing a year of professional tennis in her sophomore year in high school. She ended her high school career with a full-scholarship to play tennis for University of Miami. She made her presence known her freshman season, after she captured her first 30+ match record when she finished the 2003-04 season 31-2 overall. At the NCAA Regional’s, the then-rookie was responsible for what many consider to be the biggest upset in NCAA Women’s Tennis History when she defeated Lindsay Dawaf of defending NCAA Champion Florida 7-5, 2-6, 6-4 in the deciding match to propel Miami into the Sweet 16 for the first time since 1999, and first win over Florida in 18 years.
Audrey finished a successful college career after posting her 104th victory in singles to become Miami’s all-time career leader in singles, surpassing former All-American Ronni Reis, who tallied 103 wins from 1985-1988. This marks Banada as the second player in Miami women’s tennis history to uphold the position as the all-time career records leader in both singles and doubles simultaneously. Former Miami star Lise Gregory also led in singles and doubles at the same time in 1987.
She graduated with a degree in Exercise Physiology and she has accumulated over 10 years of training experience in group and private training environments to Division I and high school athletics. She has coached Dr. Michael Krop High School Girls Tennis to 2 State Championship wins. She was also a volunteer assistant coach for Women’s Tennis at University of Miami for 2 years, where she traveled, trained, and worked with the team as a coach at matches and in the development of their strength and conditioning program. She holds her CF Level I and CF Kids certification. She incorporates her sports background and knowledge to her current training style to create a team atmosphere of hard work and dedication.
