I am focussing on singles: Yuki BhambriFebruary 6th, 2009 - 9:00 pm ICT by ANI
New Delhi, Feb. 6, (ANI): Young tennis sensation Yuki Bhambri on Friday said that he is focussing on playing singles the time being.
Sixteen-year-old Yuki Bhambri became the first Indian to win the junior boys title at the Australian Open. He was speaking at a store launch here.
Bhambri was presented a shoe shaped memento on the occasion, which was attended by former tennis great Ramesh Krishnan.
Currently I”m focusing on singles and doubles for me mean a lot of fun and learning experience because in doubles we can practice our volley and serve which is very helpful in playing singles, Yuki said.
Bhambri has become the third Indian junior to win a title after Ramesh Krishnan (French and Wimbledon junior champion in 1979) and Leander Paes (Wimbledon junior crown in 1990 and the US Open title in 1991). (ANI)
