Haresh Ramchandani

Born in the South of Mumbai, Haresh Ramchandani fell in love with tennis while watching Steffi Graf play the sport in the late 1980s. She's retired and he is still writing about it (and missing her forehand). Haresh worked as a freelance tennis writer and regularly contributes for Sportskeeda, one of India's largest sports portals. Some day, he hopes to go to the southwest of London... They tell him that's heaven!!
