“This will be tough tie away, but our team is capable of creating some upsets against Finland even though playing on fast indoors hard courts has its own challenges. Everyone is eager to prove a point or two,” he said.

“I usually like the bounce of fast indoor surfaces and should be interesting what kind of speed the Finland team has for us."

"Yes, the pandemic has thrown my tournament schedule off. Now, this Finland tie will be my first away trip after the pandemic break,” he added.

He, however, has 'no idea' whether he will be playing singles or doubles matches. "But, anyway, playing for India itself is an honour, and that itself should be a big motivation for me to give off my best,” he said.

“Even if my role means warming the bench, serving drinks or cheering my team, I will be more than happy to do. Whatever it takes to win the tie for the team. For, I always loved team atmosphere and competing together,” he signed off.
