Sportstar - - LONG READ TENNIS -

It is a mir­a­cle that de­spite all the ne­glect, In­dian ten­nis is stay­ing healthy. If the gov­ern­ment steps in to lay hun­dreds of thou­sands of ten­nis courts around the coun­try, we can def­i­nitely have a Grand Slam sin­gles cham­pion.

Cham­pion stuff: Ramesh, his father Kr­ish­nan and Le­an­der Paes at the CLTA sta­dium in Chandigarh in Septem­ber 1993. It was a treat to watch them in full flow! Kr­ish­nan’s ex­ploits in the 1950s and 60s were ethe­real, while Ramesh showed the genes he was made of. Le­an­der, a fighter to the core, is the en­durance man of world ten­nis.
