Today’s message is especially dedicated to all the great students in Professor Cordonnier’s Gender and Sport class at Rider University.

Shikha Uberoi is a professional tennis player on the WTA tour. She plays for both the USA and India. Currently Shikha is making a comeback after being on the tour for three years. Her highest ranking was #122 in singles and #80 in doubles. She has played Fed Cup for India.

I spoke to Shikha this morning…

Ed: What do you feel are the keys to success on the pro tour?

Shikha: Discipline, resilience, the ability to be yourself at all costs, and a sense of humor.

Ed: How has tennis helped you in other areas of your life?

Shikha: Wow, making great connections and seeing the entire world. CONFIDENCE. I think I’ve learned a lot of life lessons at a very young age. Pressure – you learn to deal with pressure. You learn what it is and you see what you are made of. And then learn to thrive on it. You see your limits. You learn to push your limits. And you see what happens when you push too hard.

Ed: What advice can you give to my readers who are looking to get to the next level, not only in tennis, but life?

Shikha: Learn who you are. Be yourself. Be true and be genuine. And be persistent.

So there you have it, be on the lookout for Shikha Uberoi…she’s making a comeback!

Thank you, Shikha, and thanks for reading…
