My life’s great passions are cooking, photography and sports. I get interested into tennis around the same year when I fell in love with photography – few months after I bought my first camera.
I always wanted to play tennis. I get myself my first tennis racquet when I was 19 but sadly enough I could not find partners to play with. Back then at my university the courts were often used only by male students. Until I graduated, I never used my decent Wilson racquet.
Two years ago I started visiting a community gym and sports hall. While I was jogging around I always get distracted with some guys playing tennis. The desire kicked again. I tried to find tennis buddies but it was always disappointing.
Seven years after I bought the racquet, finally I had the chance to play tennis. I even played against Serena William and Ana Ivanovic. But, the racquet was still virgin. Felt boring to play tennis on PlayStation, I’ve decided to play real tennis with real people – with my poor racquet of course. On March, I searched for tennis lessons around KL and I found an awesome coach two weeks later. In less than 3 months, I have improved a lot and since couple of weeks ago I started to play double with other players.
Like photography, tennis requires hard work and continous learning, patience, knowledge and skill that driven by the passion before it could turn into something really satisfying and rewarding!
