Fitness mantra.

Do something today that your future would thank you for.

When did you start playing Tennis?

I started playing at the age of five and I remember that my dad used to play that time. Later on, I just couldn’t resist myself from falling in love with this game.

Are you a Predator or a Buddha?

Both. It depends on the situation I am in. Different situations require different things from you.

Any superstitious belief?

It might sound funny, but before going for any match I would look at myself in a mirror, three times.

One win that you are very proud of

I won against the guy who is currently ranked 500 in the world.

That was a good feeling and I'm happy and proud of my little win!

What would be your ultimate achievement?

Getting into top 5 in the world and winning a Grand Slam.

Perk of being an athlete

A disciplined life, meeting new people from different place, knowledge from traveling around the world and trying different cuisines.

Your biggest inspiration

My gym coach Suresh Gujrati who expired last year. He was 86 years old and is my biggest inspiration.

What matters the most during 'Do or Die' situations?

Staying calm and focused at each and every point.

What are the most common road blocks that stop people from achieving their dreams?

Vitamin M, that is, money! Lack of capital is a major road block that stops talented people from showcasing their ability!

Tattoo you would like to have

I already have one and it's a spartan.

Best sports movie ever

'Rush' is one of the most entertaining sports movie ever!

Which is the one place you really want to travel to?

I really have to explore Las vegas and Miami once in my lifetime.

Who do you think knows you the best?

It isn't surprising that my mom knows me the best.

What’s the last book you read?

'Unposted Letter' by Mahatria Ra.His words are very inspirational and I would totally recommend it to anyone!

The face-palm moment

I was going from Hyderabad to Pune and I was waiting for my bus but it didn't show up. I checked my ticket and I realized that I had booked it for a wrong date. *facepalm moment*

One moment that you won’t forget

Saluting our flag and singing the national anthem at the Olympics after winning gold.

Favorite food you could not live without?

Paneer, Chicken burgers and Pani puri are my favourites.
