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
when I was holding a cup I never asked GOD
And today in pain I should not be asking GOD
‘Why me?’ “
