I remember we were going to Spain for the Olympic qualification against China when I got a call from my parents. I could sense something was not right and they seemed to be really worried. I assured them that I am safe along with the other members and that we are taking necessary precautions. But yes, it was a little scary to see the coronavirus spread in such rapid pace.
To be honest, the lockdown has had a bearing on me mentally as when it first started, I was like, “Okay, it will be just a week or more.”
But as days progressed, we saw Lockdown 2.0, 3.0 and 4.0. It was unexpected, but COVID-19 is so dangerous that these measures had to be in place.
Everything was shut all of a sudden and it took me a while to adjust to the fact that sport is not happening anytime soon and I am not stepping on the court soon.
