India needs more clay courts to produce singles tennis stars: Mary Pierce

NEW DELHI: Like the pace on her famous forehand, Mary Pierce doesn’t hold her thoughts back. Throw a question at her and a two-sentence reply will be as lucid as an entire chapter. That’s the experience of a four-time Grand Slam champion and someone who managed to climb back into the top five after an injury-forced slip down to almost 300.

Relishing ‘idli sambar’ on her recent visit to India as the Roland Garros brand ambassador, the 45-year-old Mary relishes the simple things in life, which for her was better without the Internet, and sport, which for her was more fun with less money involved.
