Aditi Rao Hydari has now become a co-owner of the Chennai Stallions’ tennis team who will be taking part in the Tennis Premier League.

“TPL is a great initiative with the intention to make sure that tennis reaches every home,” Deccan Chronicle reports the actress stating.

She went on to add, “When I watched videos of talented young players along with the finest wheelchair players of our country play in their first season of this league, I knew it was something I wanted to be a part of.”

Apparently, tennis was a sport that was rather close to her father’s heart. “My father used to play tennis and he always wanted me to train and play the sport but I chose to be a sprinter and a dancer throughout school. This is my way of remembering him and doing my best for the sport. I really respect and love the spirit and discipline of a sportsperson,” Hydari explained.

She went on to say, “It will be exciting to see players like Ankita, Saketh, Jeevan and Purav amongst many other young players to be playing in this league. They have all represented India and played Grand Slams. To have a former national champ and ex-Davis Cup coach Nandan Bal mentoring my team, Chennai Stallions is reassuring and makes me happy.”
