Alix Klineman had plenty of reason to celebrate in 2017 on the AVP Tour/Ed Chan,
VBM co-publisher Ed Chan conducted a Q&A with Alix Klineman, who the beach-volleyball learned last week will be April Ross’s partner in 2018. Ross, who gave up a successful indoor career to try to make it on the beach, is thrilled:
I’m still in a bit of disbelief. I also have started to tell myself that I earned this opportunity. I wanted it really badly, I worked really hard for it, but at the same time I know that the hardest work is still ahead of us, so in no way can I relax and say, “Oh, I got a great partner.” Now I really have to work on getting better and really have to make improvements if I want to be successful.
