April 16, 2020 “Early on my father said, ‘Listen, son, I rather have you play an individual sport because it’s going to be tough without any money or connection to play cricket. I don’t want you to put so many hours into something and not be able to live out your dream.’ That’s why we chose tennis. Tennis started small for me, not knowing s**t. I went to the court the first day, played for an hour and hit one ball in the court. I was happy making one ball in the court. Then from there, just started playing hours of tennis. My typical schedule was fitness from 6:00 to 7:30 in the morning, come back, have breakfast and then go to school. I was allowed to miss assembly and first period. I would stay at the school until around 2:00 and then come back home and eat lunch. I would chill in bed watching anime until 5 where I would go train again. I would play tennis and do fitness and get home around 10 at night. Imagine, living like this not knowing much about tennis. My dad couldn’t afford much, we only had a bike to get around.
