“Those, to me, are memories that will stay forever. So to get recognised by the UAE Tennis Federation and the Al Habtoor Group is an experience that will stay with me for a long time as they have shown me the love and respect for what I’ve done for sport in general and tennis in particular.
“My personal appreciation for Khalaf Al Habtoor and Noura Badawi and to Nasser Al Marzouqi and Ahmed Abdul Malik and the entire tennis fraternity here.
