Editor’s Note: 10sBalls would like to thank Noah Rubin for giving us permission to repost these amazing stories.
“I grew up in a family where my dad won a medal at the 1972 Olympic Games in Munich. He was playing field hockey, while my mother was the captain of an Indian basketball team. There’s all her 5 feet 1 inch. Every Sunday I woke up the morning after the church and honed my dad’s Olympic medal. It wasn’t rocket science that I wanted to play in India, 13 On behalf of 100 million Indians, we have proved that we can be the Olympic champions in individual sports.
The whole trip was about patriotism. It’s about playing for my people and inspiring more than a billion people so that we can be world champions on the world stage.
I realized that tennis is my vehicle and I really have to work hard if I want to compete in the Olympics. I bowed my head. I worked hard for three years and won the Junior Wimbledon in the summer of 1990. In February 1990, I met another young Indian child. I said to him, “Why don’t you win Wimbledon?” He laughed at me and said, “You are crazy.” “I know I’m crazy, but do you want to win Wimbledon?” I said. He said, “Sure, tell me.” Nine years later, we won Wimbledon. breakpoint About everything.
This journey I started with Mahesh realized that we could actually be the best in the world. I gave up my singles career and proved to India that I could be the best in the world with doubles. Some people call it a sacrifice. I am very grateful to Mahesh and what I like about what I have done, and to ZEE5 for providing this platform to tell our story very honestly. We were brave enough to show our weaknesses as well.
It’s not whether Mahesh is right, Leander is wrong, Leander is right, or Leander is wrong. it does not matter. The important thing is to inspire the next generation to learn from our lives and allow them to become champions themselves in any course of life. That’s my takeaway from Breakpoint.
By living my craft student life and lifelong student life, you will learn to treat victory and defeat and treat these two scammers exactly the same. Why? Because you are always a student. I think people have to do their job, and just as people have to print their stories, tell their versions, and make their history behind them. I think the pleasure of my life is to imitate my parents and become an Olympic champion. Fun for me, and the greatest honor in my life, playing for my flag, playing for Tiranga, proving that Indians can be world leaders in every step of their lives Is to do.
I am very grateful to live my life. I am very grateful to have the opportunity to inspire people to be the best version of themselves. I think that’s what the world needs. It takes a great person to do very simple and basic things, but it is done very often on a daily level. I think that is the birth of the champion. “
