Bengaluru, Feb 9: BNS Reddy, Inspector General of Police and Director, Karnataka State Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC) won the tennis doubles trophy partnering OP Dixit of Madhya Pradesh in the 16th All India Police Lawn Tennis Championship at the RK Khanna stadium in New Delhi on Sunday (February 7).
Bengaluru's Reddy and his partner defeated Randeep Datta and Vijay Kumar of CRPF 8-1 in the final.
At the post-tournament event, Reddy was also honoured for winning a gold medal in tennis singles at the World Police Games held at Fairfax Virginia USA, last year.
After winning in USA, he had said, "I have learnt playing tennis by watching many players. However, I like Roger Federer the most. He is a complete player. Many youngsters like Rafael Nadal. I accept that he is an aggressive player but in the long run it is not good in my opinion. Federer's style of play is different from Nadal. He has mastered the art of playing tennis. Even at 34, he is fit and is still a top-class athlete."
