Says World Celebrity Tennis Coach, American Nick Bollettieri about Indian Tennis Kids who attended his Academy
” I remember that the kids who came here were too nice.The trend in your country is to be very polite.But sometimes you also have to be mean to be a good competitor.This is not easy for Indians ”
Hey,Nick !I completely disagree….to be Mean is Mean !…you don’t need to be Mean to be a Good Competitor…Maybe It’s the US System…End justifying the Means ! ( Pun unintended !)
Is the Champ ,Roger Federer, Mean !?
And if you’re going to be Mean to win matches,you’re going to be more remembered for being Mean !
Killer Instinct ! Yes!…Fight Back Spirit ! Yes!…Never Say Die Attitude ! Yes!…but Mean ! No !
So Nick ! are you going to call me another Polite Indian !?

Please email your email id at my email address.
I had send a few mails earlier but seems you haven’t received the same.
Thanks & Regards,
Wait a minute, Does Nick who has taught champs like Agassi ignore the phenomenal success of our doubles duo-though unfortunately separated-Lee and Hesh? I think Gaurav, our talented players are not focused enough and get carried away by stardom and commercial benefits. But we would definitely have won Davis cup had the 80’s singles players who reached the finals had a world-beating doubles side like them.
Touche, Shyam !
