Christina Contrafatto, 15 years old, of Cherry Hill in one of South Jersey's up and coming young tennis players. A sophomore at Cherry Hill East high school, Christina is a very active young lady with spending much of her time practicing on the tennis court, but like most teenagers finds time to spend with her friends.

Christina loves the competitive feeling of the game, much like her favorite player Jennifer Capriati and especially likes that tennis keeps her active. Christina has a lot of support and encouragement from her coaches. It is with their direction and mentoring that Christina finds the confidence to continue with her tennis and go as far as she can play the game of tennis. While she is not yet ranked, her singles record is 3 wins: 4 losses, and in doubles, 3 wins: 2 losses and was named "All South Jersey doubles team" along with Leanne Silverman.

Away from the court, Christina is a talented musician who plays the piano and in school plays the flute. She likes all kinds of music and recently has been exploring the music of different cultures.
