On the back of 2 solid weeks of runners-up in the Indian ITFs, Nishant has now become the Indian No. 1 in Boys. Nishant has been really solid with his performances across Turkey, Malaysia and India over the last couple of years to reach this coveted spot.
On becoming the new India No. 1, Nishant feels – ‘I’m not playing to be number 1 in India. Job is not finished yet’.
The young lad from Delhi aims to go pro after this year. He will be playing in the Australian Open Juniors in April and all the subsequent Grand Slams.
Nishant is trained by Coaches Aditya Sachdeva sir, Vijayant Malik sir and Vivek Shokeen sir at Siri Fort, Delhi.
Best wishes to our boy who will keep our flag high in the Grand Slam Junior Draws coming up!
16-yr old Nikita Vishwase, who had caught the imagination of the Indian Tennis fraternity by having two wins and another close match against 3 top-30 Juniors as a 14 yr old in 2019, has now taken the Numero Uno spot amongst Indians on the ITF Girls Rankings. Unfortunately, injuries and COVID-19 had stalled the progress of this talented girl.
Nikita on reaching the No. 1 spot – ‘I’m beyond happy and excited that I have ended the year as India’s No.1. I’ve been working really hard so the title really means a lot to me !’.
Nikita trains in Arizona with her coach Jeremy Coll and is supported by her parents. She is training hard and is looking at playing as many ITF tournaments as she can.
Nikita plans to take the College Tennis path after juniors.
