Assam girl makes it to Wimbledon


Tanisha Kashyap, a 14-year-old tennis player won the heart and attention of a million Indians just as she qualified to represent India in under-14 Wimbledon tournament. Tanisha Kashyap is the first Assamese to represent India in under-14 Wimbledon tournament ever. The event is going to be held in August in London.

Tanisha Kashyap is from Hajo of Kamrup district who started her career at the Numaligarh Refinery, Golaghat. She got training under renowned coaches like Wamique Ansari, Monoj Chouhan, Narendra Nath in NVK. Of late, she has been training with former Davis Cup players and acclaimed coaches Vivek Shoken and Vishal Uppal in New Delhi.

Although the North-Eastern states of India are neglected from the mainstream, women like Mary Kom have come forward to draw attention to the tremendous potential that the youth possess. Like her, Tanisha is an achiever who has already 12 junior titles and one national championship in her bag. The young girl is a true inspiration for millions of youth across the country. She will be joined by Dev J Javia and other two finalists in the courts of the All England Club.
