Vijay has always been a class act. I enjoyed watching him play Bertram Tournament in Loyola College where I was one year senior to him. I followed his whole tennis career and he was always delightful to watch. He is a perfect gentleman off the court. I saw him at a restaurant in LA a while ago and introduced myself as an ex Loyolite. He took the time to come and meet/greet my family at the table. We need more athletes like Vijay. Wish you all the best in everything you do, Vijay.

Vijay Amritraj was always the face of Indian Tennis in the
international scene. He is an extraordinary Indian, with gift of the
gab and skills to match. His numerous accomplishments in Tennis is
unrivalled to this day. I grew up watching Vijay in conversation with
Allan Wilkins at the Wimbledon. This was one event I never wished to
miss out on. The excitement of Wimbledon with Vijay was a heady mix.

The only peeve I have was that BAT had a big role to play in promoting
tennis in India and its winding up has not helped the cause at all. I
certainly hope that BAT will be revived with the best of coaches and
facilities nationwide. At the moment, there is glaring lack of
facilities and coaching in cities in India, as a result of which
children are fast turning away from it.

Vijay is a great Indian, sports personality par excellence by any standards and his smile is simply splendid. Let us honour him by making him incharge for growth of Tennis in India. Insted of talks, let us take concrete steps.
