BANGALORE: Poojashree Venkatesh will participate in the junior girls’ singles event of the Canadian Open championship starting on August 26.

“It would be good for me to play the event prior to the U.S. Open and get good match practice,” said the youngster from Mysore.

Poojashree also interacted with Vijay Amritraj, who was in town, and sought his advice on her game. Vijay advised her to play freely at the U.S. Open and not get bogged down as a first-timer. — Special Correspondent
