Arguably the most popular sportsperson in India and one of the greatest cricketers to have blessed the game, Sachin Tendulkar continues to live in the memories of a billion fans through his rich legacy in the gentleman's game. While his exquisite stroke-play enticed the spectators, his humility earned him respect of his opponents in cricketing circles.
Now retired and enjoying his life, Tendulkar, still, garners public interest like no other in the country. His words of wisdom on the social media are hailed as The Bible by cricketers and fans alike. And, apart from cricket, Tendulkar, over the years, has confessed his love for tennis.
He has been snapped with the bigwigs of tennis and is often found sitting in the stands during the Grand Slams. And, with the Australian Open currently in progress, Tendulkar was recently seen lauding the security guard who stopped 20-time Grand Slam champion Roger Federer from entering the locker room at the Rod Laver Arena as the Swiss ace didn't carry his identification card with him.January 24, 2019
But, on Thursday, once again, showcasing his love for tennis, Tendulkar put up a 'Throwback Thursday' post on the social media. Taking to Twitter, the 'Master Blaster' shared a collage of pictures of himself from the yesteryears where he was seen playing tennis without shoes. "Nothing ever stopped me from playing sports. Not even when I didn't have my shoes on," the Indian batting great tweeted.
Tendulkar's post struck a chord with the cricket fans who had different reactions to his photos on the micro-blogging website.
