Teen prodigy Yuki complains about lack of financial backing after stunning Karol Beck in first round

Yuki Bhambri, the 19-year old former World No 1 junior, made a plea for financial support to young Indian tennis players. Speaking after his 6-2, 6-3 rout of Slovakia's Karol Beck in the first round of the Chennai Open yesterday, Bhambri said: "The financial support is totally lacking for young tennis players in India.

You see the top guys moving with a support staff, not just the coaches but the trainer as well. It's a luxury that one needs in today's game. It's one of the biggest drawbacks that we have in this country. It's all about cricket. I hope that people will notice tennis players too."
