14-year-old tennis player Tanisha Kashyap becomes the first Assamese to represent India in under-14 Wimbledon tournament that is going to be held in August. The girl from Hajo of Kamrup district was earlier crowned India Champions and this time, she will be competing in the Road to Wimbledon National Finals on the grass courts of Wimbledon in London.

She has already bagged 12 junior titles and one national championship and now, the Wimbledon is like a dream come true for her. She will be joined by Dev J Javia and other two finalists in the courts of the All England Club.

The Road to Wimbledon is a tournament for players aged Under 14. It is is a joint initiative by the All England Lawn Tennis Club (AELTC), HSBC and the All India Tennis Association (AITA) who have all reaffirmed their commitment to tennis in India by extending the event to Indore and Hyderabad for 2016.


The Logical Indian congratulates Tanisha for her achievement. We wish her all the best for the future ahead and hope she will be able to make India proud like the other great sports personalities of our country.
