6. Age 7- Maiden Tournament Win

Nothing motivates more than WIN. My son just turned 7 and had worked very hard over last summer vacation to get basic level of shots – Forehand, Backhand and a bit of Serve.  We had come to know there was a regional tournament around 3 hrs away from our place for under 10 years of age boys. I booked and took him there. As matches start at 8 am in morning, we left very early in the morning and my son was sleeping all the way. As it was his very first ever tournament and also 3+ years older age group, we were not really expecting any thing other than some experience for all of us 🙂 . The matches were a set each for round robin, followed by semifinal and a final. In total 7 matches. He won all except one in round robins and reached the semi final to our (and his) surprise. He also won the semi and won the final as well. Irrespective of how he played all his 7 full set-matches, the trophy in the end gave him the kind of push, which made him to dedicate most of his time on Tennis. That day,
