Training with Paes was a dream come true for the kids. “We have seen Leander uncle practice at the Gymkhana. But training with him was so much fun,” said nine-year-old Neha D’Souza.

“I have been learning to play tennis for some time now. But watching Leander sir today has inspired me to work hard and take up tennis as a career," said 12-year-old Yash Sippy.
