One who makes it through bad days will only get to see good days: Hyd tennis player Sravya Shivani


From childhood fantasy to irresistible passion, 21-year-old Sravya Shivani from Hyderabad went on to win a silver and gold medal in the South Asian Games in 2019; doubles title in the International Tennis Federation tournament in Tunisia; and doubles in the national tournament, both held in 2021 among other tournaments. Sravya began her career in tennis at the age of seven. It was more of recreation for her, like her music and dance classes. "I used to go along with my brother to the training institute, School of Power Tennis in Hyderabad, where I met my first coach C.V Nagaraj," says Sravya. She trained under him for over 12 years. It was when Sravya was in her 8th standard in Hyderabad Public School that she decided to take up tennis as her career. Her family was particular about her studies so she had to manage both studies and tennis. She says it was not easy.
