SIVADEEP KOSARAJU

Sivadeep is an immensely talented tennis player. The lack of infrastructure and good coaching facilities in the city of Vishakapatnam has not deterred Sivadeep one bit. The natural ability and skill with which he plays his game have kept him consistently in the top 10 leagues for the past 6 years. In spite of some very good wins over some of India s top players, Sivadeep has not been able to scale even higher due to insufficient funding as he has been unable to travel to take part in tournaments. But each time that Sivadeep has participated he has produced some very impressive results. His formidable line of achievements this year includes being the Title Winner at the National series (Pune), at the Superseries (Chennai) as well as the Championship Series (Bengaluru). He was the semi-finalist at the Delhi Nationals last year and currently holds a rank of 9 in the under 16 boys category.

SHYAM SUNDAR

Ever since I was a kid, I have had a high passion for playing Tennis and have aspired to make it to the top. However, I faced very little success in my junior days, despite the potential I showed and all the hard work I invested in the sport. Not being ready for the pro circuit, I knew that college tennis in the USA was the next best step for me and I turned to Empower Sports for help.

Empower Sports guided me through each and every step and made the whole process so much easier. I ended up getting an offer to play for NCAA Division 1 tennis for Niagara University, and this opportunity has provided me with an excellent platform to pursue studies and tennis at a high level. I could not thank Empower Sports enough for giving me this opportunity!
