Arthur Ashe

First African-American male to win the U.S. championship,
First to win at Wimbledon, First to play for the U.S. Davis
Cup team, and on and on.

Arthur Ashe, the legendary Wimbledon player was dying of
AIDS which he got due to infected blood he received during
a heart surgery in 1983.
From world over, he received letters from his fans, one of
which conveyed: “Why does GOD have to select you for such
a bad disease”?
To this Arthur Ashe replied:
“The world over — 50 million  children start playing
tennis, 5 million learn to play tennis,
500,000 learn professional tennis, 50,000 come to the
circuit, 5000 reach the  grand slam,
50 reach Wimbledon, 4 to semi final, 2 to the
finals,
when I was holding a cup I never asked GOD
‘Why me?’.
And today in pain I should not be asking GOD
‘Why me?’ “

Happiness keeps you Sweet,
Trials keep you Strong,
Sorrow keeps you Human,
Failure keeps you humble and Success keeps
you glowing, but only Faith & Attitude Keeps you going…
