Just months after the Paralympics took place in Rio, wheelchair athletes from around the world gathered in England this week for the Bath Indoors Wheelchair Tennis Tournament. The event is a prelude to the NEC Wheelchair Tennis Masters held in London just two weeks afterwards.

Itay Erenlib, a 31-year-old from Israel who competed in the Paralympics this summer, is seen at the tournament this week in the photo above. He defeated James Shaw of Great Britain to win the Quad Singles Final match on Friday.

"I focus on myself, my abilities, and not in my rival's abilities," Erenlib said. "I focus on me, my energies, I encourage myself. I learned how to be positive. In life, not everything we come across is positive, but you learn something from anything."
