I played a backhand like Roger Federer

I would have been somewhere in top ranking of Pakistan Tennis Federation, if I were given opportunity to show my ability of playing various pace shots on tennis court, in my early age. Due to lack of tennis facilities in a small town, my dreams of playing tennis remained only dreams until I moved to Karachi. When first time I grabbed the tennis racquet and played few forehands my tennis partner asked me if I was practicing some where.

This was my passion that I started adopting tennis style in my badminton game and while practicing forehands with wall, back at home town.  I remember when I was in 10th grade I told my brother who visited my place for a night that I really wanted to play tennis and he told me to focus on studies and become something. Like some corporate jerk duh!!! I wish he could have understand that playing a backhand like roger feels same as you score top in math. Hitting big forehands are same as scoring in language subjects. Reading your opponents game is as good as reading prisoner of Zenda. Slice always tells you how gravity works with the ball. I wish I were a tennis player and my progress report were sent to my dad for my various shots.

  • Forehand 90%
  • Backhand 70%
  • Volley 60%
  • Service 85%
  • Foot movement 85%
  • Accumulative GPA 3.5

Instead of university I was given scholarships to play in ATP tournaments and instead of GMAT I were preparing for Grand slams. My dad were clapping for every backhand that I play like Roger but I forgot, my dad was not a tennis player. If dreams were supposed to come true then they would not have been dreams. I could not become a tennis player but I make sure that you find me at some tennis court of small town in Pakistan, promoting tennis.
