It’s my great­est gift

Sportstar - - 40 SUPERSTARS - VI­JAY AM­RI­TRAJ

For­mer Davis Cup cap­tain and World No. 16

TTwice Wim­ble­don semi­fi­nal­ist he sport has ac­tu­ally been the back­bone of my life. By a long shot it has been my great­est ed­u­ca­tion. It has taught me mostly about my­self. It has taken me to dif­fer­ent places that I never dreamt of go­ing to and have met peo­ple that I've never dreamt of meet­ing.

It has made me the per­son I am. Ten­nis is the great­est gift that my par­ents, espe­cially my mother, has given me.

There are tons of mem­o­ries of Sport­star. One of my high­lights of Sport­star has been when I was on the cover. The as­pect of cov­er­ing sport to the fullest ex­tent pos­si­ble is what I like about the mag­a­zine. It has fol­lowed the tra­jec­tory and per­for­mance of In­di­ans very well. It has had a huge im­pact on In­dian sport. It is like what Film­fare [mag­a­zine] is to the film in­dus­try.
