He is coached by his cousin Sombir Malik, who himself learnt a diversion by examination matches on radio though quit after encountering tennis bend issues due to use with bald balls.

Everything during a Netaji Subash Chandra Bose Sansthan, a academy run by Ajmer, has some ‘desi jugad’ as he motionless not to crib about miss of income and comforts though managed to give adequate for use to a kids. The net for a sand courts is upheld by electricity poles, that were felled due to sleet and clever winds. The lines on a courts are not drawn by orange powder though by nylon ropes so that they final prolonged and income is saved. Tyres of opposite weights trimming from 5kg to 100kg are are used while using to build strength in legs and wrist strength is grown by climbing on thick ropes, swinging between dual outrageous concrete pillars.

Arun had also helped Ajay get a understanding with Head who have now concluded to give him 4 racquets in a year. His father Ajmer suggested that before a final, Ajay’s racquet tummy was damaged and he left it to God.

“The stringer asked for Rs 800  to correct and we had usually Rs 300  in my pocket. How would we have returned from Delhi to my encampment if we spent that money? He has usually dual racquets and we usually prayed that zero happens to a second one,” Ajmer said.
