“Playing against senior players like them, there is no strategy. They can come back at any time; they have that mindset. So from starting onwards, we didn`t take it as pressure and we tried to enjoy every point.”

He added,

“They are like idols. We have been following them since a young age. When we took our racquets, they were already All England champions and world champions. So, we know how they play.”

He further added,

“But going into the match, we had a strategy with our coach and focused on the service receiving – they are very strong at it. After the injury, the way we are playing it`s a good sign for us.”
