Another tennis ace from the city is in the making. The School of Power Tennis, run by coach C. V. Nagraj, has thrown up a bundle of talent in the form of Bollipalli Rithvik Choudhary. And, if his latest achievement of becoming India No. 1 in the boys under-12 category is any indication, Rithvik is widely believed by observers to make a big impact if only he sustains his current levels of excellence and passion for the sport.
“Rithvik has the talent and the game to go a long way in the circuit. The best part is that he is disciplined and is keen on improving his game,” acknowledged Mr. Nagaraj, who has the rare distinction of producing three Davis Cuppers from his school at the RRC Ground in Secunderabad.
Eleven-year-old Rithvik, who took to tennis at the age of six, is already one of the most consistent players in his age group having already won 30 titles at different levels in the last three years.
This seventh-standard student of Delhi Public School loves to essay his backhand down-the-line shot even while trying to improve upon his fitness level.
Rithvik, encouraged by his parents B. Pratap, a businessman, and B. Lakshmi, a homemaker, is now gunning for top honours in the National under-12 championship this May.
