"I worked very hard throughout the camp which resulted in my victory against the top players of Spain. Though, I played very well throughout the tournament, it's not an easy tournament for Indian players in many ways to have a victory but I dealt with all of extra things away from the tournament pretty well better than may be I had done in the past. It was my first time in a National Championship final and my victory, I'd never been there before. So, I'm still improving, still playing better tennis trying to improve which is all I can do. Last but not the least, I would like to thank to team, especially to my coach S C Sarangi, Director Coaching, S S Tennis Academy who took all pain to make me reach to this level, Felipe Beneroso Cruz, Pelayo Nunez Navarro, Miguel Linares, Prabin Kumar Nayak, Gopal Behera, Biswajit Das, Nishant Kumar, my parents-father M K Mishra, mother Nirupama Rath, the most amiable brother Avinash Mishra, and Sai International School, who had been a great support behind my success. Thank you very much for supporting me. Now Looking forward for National Chennai in India", said Avilash at the closing ceremony.
