Ten­nis has been an ed­u­ca­tion

Sportstar - - 40 SUPERSTARS - RA­MANATHAN KR­ISH­NAN

Ten­nis has been my life since I started play­ing the sport dur­ing my school days. What­ever ex­pe­ri­ences I have been through, what­ever suc­cess I have achieved, it was due to ten­nis. Thanks to the sport, I have trav­elled to dif­fer­ent con­ti­nents. It has taught me hu­man be­hav­iour, and most of all, it has been an ed­u­ca­tion for me.

I started read­ing Sport­star (then Sport & Past­time) when I was 13. It was a mag­a­zine that was up­to­date with the lat­est sport­ing events. If you are a sports fan, you just have to fol­low it. I have many pleas­ant mem­o­ries of the mag­a­zine.

I miss Nir­mal Shekar the for­mer Sports Edi­tor of The Hindu and Edi­tor, Sport­star and wish he was here with us as the maza­gine cel­e­brates 40 years.
