Tennis has been my life since I started playing the sport during my school days. Whatever experiences I have been through, whatever success I have achieved, it was due to tennis. Thanks to the sport, I have travelled to different continents. It has taught me human behaviour, and most of all, it has been an education for me.

I started reading Sportstar (then Sport & Pastime) when I was 13. It was a magazine that was up-to-date with the latest sporting events. If you are a sports fan, you just have to follow it. I have many pleasant memories of the magazine.

I miss Nirmal Shekar the former Sports Editor of The Hindu and Editor, Sportstar and wish he was here with us as the mazagine celebrates 40 years.
