Most Indians go into education. Their parents just push them into education like parents in Australia push them into sports.
I don't think there's any dearth of talent in India - we've always had the best juniors in the world.
Wimbledon 2014 will be my last slam. To be honest, I am already starting to miss professional tennis, having played at the highest level for two decades. It is what has given me my identity, and I will miss every bit of the action. The thought that I will not be playing anymore is daunting.
I think that tennis has been in a place for many years without any change. Davis Cup and Fed Cup has always been a very exciting platform for players because it is such an individual sport, and we get to play a team competition. We love being part of a team.
I'm a deeply spiritual person, and I strongly believe that God is watching over me!
I don't think tennis is a glamour game, not at all.
Indian food is a luxury on tour.
The mentality we have in India is not very sporting.
I am glad that Wimbledon is my last slam. I love the atmosphere and courts of SW19, and it is an addiction, which I will find tough to give up.
