Infact in my growing up days I always wanted to play the game but at that time it was considered an elitist sport which we could not afford. Tennis over the years has seen a dramatic change not just growing by leaps and bound but has also become very accessible to all in India. It is tournaments like this that I believe will help it grow even bigger, getting larger audiences attracted to the game."
