You were introduced to tennis at the age of four by your father who used to run a tennis club. Walk us through your spectacular journey and share what all led you to take up this sport professionally?
I don’t even remember my beginning in tennis because I was too little, but my mother is always saying that I was the first one who woke up in the morning and wanted to go play tennis. I was very fortunate because of the club my father had, I didn’t have to worry About how many hours I signed in club schedule, If there was a free court I could go play.
When I was around 6 years old I started to play tournaments and loved it ever since. Just that adrenalin and feeling of winning was and still is amazing.
