Posters, a big source of mo­ti­va­tion

Sportstar - - 40 SUPERSTARS -

Sin­gles gold at the 2006 Mel­bourne Com­mon­wealth Games Iades. have been play­ing ta­ble ten­nis for the last three dec

It’s my iden­tity, my pas­sion and my first love. The game has given ev­ery­thing to me in life and I am re­ally for­tu­nate that I was in­tro­duced to the sport by my father and un­cle, the Rao brothers — Srini­vasa and Mu­ralid­hara.

I used to col­lect cen­trepage posters and that was one of the main rea­sons to buy the mag­a­zine. There was one sea­son where we pasted all the posters on the walls of our ta­ble ten­nis club in Chen­nai and that used to be a big source of mo­ti­va­tion. And per­son­ally for me, I dream of be­ing on the poster some­time in the fu­ture, but I re­ally doubt if I have done enough, so far, to jus­tify a spot on the cen­tre poster of Sport­star.
