Pasquale Greco, born in 1982, is a Paralympic tennis player from Prato. Originally from Calabria, in the province of Crotone, after his school studies he moved north for work, travelled a lot and settled in Turin. Then he decided to move again and settle in Prato, where his girlfriend Rosy was living. In Tuscany, Pasquale found work and was able to pursue his hobbies, including skiing and motorcycling. In 2009, a motorbike accident left him with complete paraplegia at D12 level. His life changed drastically and he had to turn everything upside down: sport, family, work.
After a break, he went back to work as a clerk. Sport started to be more and more at the centre of his life, both therapeutically and as a source of motivation. Pasquale tried to return to the snow with the monoski, but the feeling was not the same as before. With tennis, it was the opposite. As soon as he tried wheelchair tennis he fell in love with it, began to train seriously, competed and climbed the leaderboards. In the meantime, Rosy, who had become his wife, gave him the most beautiful gift with the birth in 2019 of little Roberto, who already likes to pick up the racquet like his dad. Pasquale also reached seventh place in the Italian ranking. Through Piero Amati and the Unità Spinale Sports Group in Florence he learnt about Obiettivo3, applied for the new Tennis initiative, and was recruited. The race continues with the goal of entering the Italian top 5 and being a little more like his idol Roger Federer.
