"I am delighted to hear about the AITA Wheelchair Tennis Championship tournament being organized in Bengaluru from 2nd to 4th Dec. I wish the tournament great success and hope that it will serve to unearth fresh talent from India. Tournaments like these can be a stepping stone for players from our country to eventually qualify for the Grand Slam Wheelchair tennis tournaments. Good luck to all the competitors!"

"I am so delighted to hear that wheelchair tennis is being promoted in India. Tennis is such a wonderful sport and it opens so many career and social opportunities. I started playing when I was three years old and I made friends in my development group who I am still friends with now and we travel the tour together. It is so important try new things because you never know where it might lead. I really hope tennis can give to the people in India what it has given to me over the many years."
