Arjuna award is a big boost for me - Saketh Sai, The School of Power Tennis




The prestigious Arjuna award couldn't have come at a better time for the 29-year-old Saketh Myneni, who returned to action just a month ago after a shoulder injury that put him off the professional circuit for over six months. “It's a great feeling to be bestowed with such a coveted award,“ said Saketh, speaking to TOI from China, where he's currently playing a tournament.“It's not official yet as I haven't received any official confirmation from the government in this regard,“ he said about the award. “Certainly, it's a great inspiration for me to win more medals and laurels for the country .I feel humbled, honoured to be in the company of some great champions who had won this award before,“ said the India's golden boy at the 2014 Incheon Asian Games, where he combined with Sania Mirza to clinch the mixed doubles title.
Saketh, in fact, had a grand double at the Incheon Asian Games as he also bagged a silver in the men's doubles partnering Sanam Singh.He also thanked Sania, who partnered with him to win the Asian Games gold, for nominating him for the award.
The `painful' shoulder injury has taken its toll on his ranking as he slipped from his career-best world ranking of 113 last year to 442. “I'm not looking at the ranking now.I'm just happy to stay healthy ,“ the Visakhapatnam lad said.
“The Arjuna award is a big boost for me ahead of the India's Davis Cup World Group playoff against Canada next month,“ he said. “I'm really looking forward for the Davis Cup tie. Hopefully , we will beat Canada and enter the elite World Group again,“ he said.
However, Saketh, who had won nine ITF and two ATP Challenger singles titles in his career so far, was cautious about the controversial remarks made by his Davis Cup teammate Rohan Bopanna, who had lashed out at the All India Tennis Association (AITA) for not recommending his name for the Arjuna award. “It's unfortunate. I really don't know about the criteria followed by AITA with regard to selection of players for Arjuna award. So, I can't comment on the issue. Rohan is a quality player. Hopefully, he too will get the award soon,“ Saketh said.
However, he denied facing any trouble in the Dragon Land particularly in the aftermath of the India-China standoff over the Doklam row, “Everything is normal here. Certainly , I haven't faced any issues regarding visa, whatsoever. China is a developed country and for sportsmen these things doesn't matter much,“ he said.
He thanked his first coach PK Kishore of Viskhapatnam and CV Nagaraju of Hyderabad for helping him fine tune his technique. “There are several people who supported me all these years and I'm very grateful to all of them,“ said Saketh, who is eagerly awaiting for his return to the country next week.

TSPT Student Shiva Kumar Reddy will be achieving by officiating as line umpire in the championships this month-end

What he cherished as a player, Shiva Kumar will be achieving by officiating as line umpire in the championships this month-end
It will be a maiden Grand Slam appearance with a difference! For the 35-year-old Jakkireddy Shiva Kumar Reddy, it is “going to be an unforgettable experience to officiate as line umpire in the Wimbledon championships this month-end.”
“It is so exciting to even think of it and I am sure will cherish it for my lifetime. And, this is a dream which as a player I could not achieve for different reasons, but now as an official I will be there,” says a visibly elated Shiva Kumar.
Constant support
Shiva Kumar gave up as a tennis player despite early promise to take care of his parents (his father Venkat Reddy retired as a PET in Sheikhpet Government High School) and took to officiating thanks to the constant support of his mentor and renowned city-based coach C.V. Nagaraj of School of Power Tennis (RRC) and now is a regular on the ATP and the WTA Tour events across the world.
Major assignments
Some of his major assignments included officiating matches featuring legends like Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Serena Williams either as a line or chair umpire.
“Honestly, I never expected to officiate in Wimbledon when I choose this line. But thanks to the support of the State Tennis Association and the AITA and all well-wishers and fellow players, I am going to realise my biggest dream,” says Shiva Kumar in an exclusive chat with The Hindu.
“It all began in 1999 when I started officiating during weekends and soon graduated into a full-fledged umpire with the first major assignment being the Asian Satellite championship in the city,” says the articulate tennis official.
“I must thank here the highly respected Nitin Kannamwar (Gold Badge Referee) for guiding me right through my career,” says a grateful Shiva Kumar.
Some of the major events which Shiva Kumar officiated include the WTA Hyderabad Open (when Sania Mirza won her first WTA title), Qatar, Dubai Opens besides the 2010 Delhi Commonwealth Games and Davis Cup matches too.
“The urge to keep improving and updated with all the latest in the world of tennis are the reason for my successful stint so far,” he says.
For someone who adores Federer and Nadal, Shiva Kumar gently reminds that to see them is itself a distant dream for many tennis lovers and players and to officiate in Wimbledon where these greats will be in action is something which is going to be unforgettable. “I just hope to live up to the expectations by staying cool and giving off my best,” signs off Shiva Kumar who will one of the five umpires from India at Wimbledon.

The tennis player is now India No.1 in boys under-16 - Student of Cheif Coach CV Nagraj, The School of Power Tennis


The tennis player is now India No.1 in boys under-16
From a reluctant tennis player to a consistent performer, Bollipalli Rithvik Choudary has come a long way. This young talent is now the India No. 1 in the boys under-16 (he is also India No. 8 in the under-18 category).
Clearly, the Sania Mirza impact seems to be on in terms of spurring the young talent to dream big and notch up significant achievements too as Rithvik’s feat comes close on the heels of another Hyderabadi, Y. Sai Dedeepya, becoming India No. 1 in the under-16 category recently.
For someone who started off training under one of the most dedicated and unobtrusive coaches from the city, C.V. Nagraj, at The School of PowerTennis established in 1991 at RRC Ground (Secunderabad) when he was just seven, this 16-year-old Rithvik has been a consistent player which also saw him represent the country in the Asia-Oceania Junior Davis Cup in Delhi early this year. And his record in that major event – three wins and two losses in doubles and one win and a loss in singles – speaks of his immense promise.
“It’s a great feeling to be No.1 in my age group. Well, it gives some kind of an advantage as it means some pressure on the opponent too,” says Rithvik, an Intermediate student at Bhavan’s Sainikpuri.
Interestingly, Rithvik combines excellence both in academics and sports and this is what makes his parents - Pratap and Lakshmi - proud and lend him unstinted support to pursue his career.
“We will go all out even as we search for sponsorships which are never easy to get. Given Rithvik’s interest in the sport and performances, we are sure things will be much better in the next couple of years when he starts doing well in the under-18 category also,” explains the young player’s mother.
On the other hand, coach Nagraj, who produced four Davis Cuppers and five national champions so far, insists that Rithvik has a big serve and impressive backhand and forehands too. “Unlike many, Rithvik is an all-court player. All he needs is to work on his fitness and then he will be another player to watch,” signs off the untiring coach.
