About Tatiana

A former D1 tennis champion at Prairie View A&M University, Tatiana transitioned her talents to pickleball, entering her first professional pickleball event in 2021. With wins and battles over several big name pros, Tatiana has established herself as not only a professional, but a player to watch, as her results seem to improve with every tournament. Be prepared to see Ruhl’s name on Sunday scorecards across several professional tours, including the PPA and APP! 

Tatiana’s Paddle of Choice 

Tatiana, like many other top-tier Gearbox players, has chosen the Pro Power E as her weapon of choice for pro events moving forward. Tatiana’s top-notch hand speed and powerful strokes are a perfect match for the Pro Power E, which adds even more power to her shots while maintaining balance and maneuverability. The Pro Power E’s stability boosts consistency while providing whistling power and a massive amount of spin. The paddle’s wide sweet spot doesn’t flutter, even when the ball is struck on the outer edges of the frame, making it a great option for novices and pros alike.
