Shielded from the media:
Merri Kelly Hannity was born in 2002 to Jill Rhodes and Sean Hannity. Born to celebrity parents, Merri has been subject to early media exposure. However, over the years, her parents have tried their best to make sure that Merri is shielded from the media. Raised alongside her older sibling Sean Patrick Hannity, Merri has always enjoyed tennis. Even though Merri and Patrick have been the subject of quite a few media interrogations, both Jill and Sean have worked hard to make sure that they get the privacy they deserve. Merri is still in high school and is looking to make it as a professional tennis player.
Her most recent achievement came in the Nassau singles championship, where she represented the Cold Spring Harbor girls tennis team. She defeated Port Washington’s Thea Rabman, 6-2, 2-6, 6-0, to capture the Nassau singles championship. Merri had taken a year off tennis to focus on her grades in high school.
“I was going to come back last year but I decided I needed to focus more on my grades in the beginning of the year. But we decided then that I’d come back this year.”
This marked Merri’s second time winning the Nassau championship, as the first time she managed to do so was in 2016, where she not only managed to win the Nassau championship but also advanced to the semi-finals of the state championship. She is now focused on winning the state championship. As her coach put it,
“We knew this was going to be a tough season because there were so many top players returning in the county. The focus was on winning another county title and moving on to win a state title, which is where our heads are now.”
