Canadian professional tennis player Vasek Pospisil was born on June 23, 1990 in Vernon, British Columbia to parents Milos Pospisil and Mila Pospisil.

In 1988, two years before his birth, his parents together with his older brothers unlawfully drove from Czechoslovakia to Austria to escape the Communist regime.

Before moving, his father Miloš worked as the plant manager of a dairy factory, while his mother Mila taught in a kindergarten.

His parents had experience playing recreational sports such as tennis in local tournaments.

Vasek’s family lived in northeastern Austria and saved up to move to Canada despite working long hours for low wages.

In the summer of 1989, a year to his birth, they finally moved to Vernon, British Columbia, a city in the Okanagan Valley.

Vasek’s entire family had a meager understanding of the English language and upon their arrival, his father Miloš worked two jobs, at a flour mill and as a machinery operator at a brewery.

Milos began taking more interest in the game of tennis after the birth of Vasek.

Milos coached Vasek’s older brothers on community tennis courts, recorded matches on television, and found tips and guidelines in tennis magazines.

When Vasek was about 3 years old, he started acting as his brothers’ ball boy when they practiced with their father.

Vasek played his first tournament at age 6, competing at the under-12 level and still emerging as the champion.
