The fact that so many people, not just in the tennis community, rallied around you and supported you with such unity is something that really struck out to me while I was watching you compete. I’ve never seen anything like it for any other individual athlete before. that is something that cannot be produced in any form and cannot be made.
“You’ve always had that unique talent. When we watched you play, it was extremely clear, and the energy you brought to the court was unmatched. You will always hold the title of finest person ever in my eyes. You’ll have just as much fun and enjoyment in the next stage of your life as you did on the court, I’m confident. I’m hoping for the best for you and your family. Keep an eye on yourself, the India batter added.
