Former world No.1 Chris Evert has a special affection towards all that is Indian. "Ah! The Amritraj Brothers and chicken curry," she was quoted as saying by TOI. Both Vijay and Ashok Amritraj were former professional tennis players and Evert struck up a strong friendship with the brothers when they were playing the World Team Tennis tournament.

"When Vijay and Ashok were playing for the LA Strings, they used to take me out to all these Indian restaurants. That's when I fell in love with chicken curry and I am still having it," Evert adds with a smile.

The 58-year-old also commended the growth of Indian players despite the system in place, and compared it to the growth of Russian players. "Russia takes all the credit but their players come to America at a very young age."
