Greetings! My name is M. Theertha Shashank, 20 years old and I am a tennis player from Hyderabad, India. I have a lot of passion for this sport. I have been and pursuing tennis as my career for many years and as a Junior level tennis player, I have represented India on many occasions such as the World Junior Championship, Under 14 ITF World Junior Asia/ Oceania Championship, held at Thailand and came 5th in whole of Asia, HSBC Road to Wimbledon, Junior Davis Cup and many more. But It’s very challenging for me to travel and play pro tournaments outside the country and the biggest hurdle for me is not having the financial capacity to do so.
