Asia Muhammad (born April 4, 1991 in Long Beach) is an American tennis player who turned professional in 2007.[1]

Her favorite surface is the hard court. She has won four doubles titles on the WTA Tour, as well as seven singles and thirty-two doubles titles on the ITF Women's Circuit.

Personal life[edit]

Her younger brother Shabazz Muhammad currently plays for the Shanxi Brave Dragons in the Chinese Basketball Association.[2] She is the niece of former Kansas City Chiefs and Minnesota Vikings receiver Stephone Paige. Asia was born in Long Beach, California to Ron Holmes and Faye Muhammad. Ron Holmes was a 6-foot-5-inch (1.96 m) standout, four-year starting point guard for the USC Trojans men's basketball program in the 1980s. He played under the names of Ronald Muhammad, Ron Shabazz and Rashad Muhammad but settled on Ron Holmes after never finishing his religious conversion to Islam. Muhammad's mother, Faye, was a point guard and track star at Long Beach State.[1][2]
