How you got interested in Tennis?
I used to do swimming and play badminton when I was a kid. Later on I learnt about playing Tennis. My coach did not agree to coach me as I was underage. My first guru in Tennis is my mother. I began playing Tennis at an age of 6 years. I was initially reluctant to play Tennis. My headmistress convinced me to participate in a Tennis tournament. If she had not made me play that tournament, my life would not be the same.

What is your secret of success?
Hard work is the secret of my success. In order to achieve the goal, I had to sacrifice certain things in love in my life.
