Injuries

Ankle strain in August 2017. (indianexpress.com, 22 Aug 2017)


Reason: “I am the youngest of three sisters and mum asked all of us to take up at least one sport seriously. Today I absolutely love squash, but my entry into the sport was accidental. I used to play tennis, but I took to squash since my best friend went for coaching.? (hindustantimes.com, 26 Oct 2014)
Ambition: Be world number one and win the Bharat Ratna (highest civilian award of the Republic of India). (sportskeeda.com, 21 Aug 2015)
Memorable: “Scotland (Glasgow 2014) was special. It is the biggest win of my career. Because we don’t have squash at the Olympics, the Commonwealth Games and Asian Games are our biggest platforms to perform, especially since squash is such an underrated sport in India." (hindustantimes.com, 26 Oct 2014)
Hero: Roger FEDERER (SUI) (sportskeeda.com, 21 Aug 2015)
