Default Acing all odds, the Leander Paes way

Great story on Washington Kastles player Leander Paes

It is perhaps incidental that Leander Paes notices, while munching on his breakfast, that the colour of my shirt matches the orange stripes on my sneakers. Or that he remembers me from two years ago when I was watching him play a doubles match at Wimbledon. “Red glasses, seated on my left with a thick notebook, right?” he asks. Lucky guess, surely. But when the 17-time Grand Slam champion runs me through his historic 1995 Davis Cup match against Goran Ivanisevic (who later went on to win Wimbledon in 2001), I begin to believe all the special things he claims his mind can do. Behind that easygoing demeanour, the country’s most inspiring sports icon hides a mind that’s sharper than his outstretched Becker-esque volleys.
