First Nepali to qualify for Wimbledon

Another nice article by Ayush Khadka - this time about the first Nepali to qualify for Wimbledon - Sujay Lama. To be honest, I had my doubts about the story, so I actually Googled around to verify. Sure enough, it's true!

Here is a detailed profile of Sujay Lama from the University of North Texas athletics website. He is currently the head of the tennis program there and holds a very impressive resume. It is always great to learn of a Nepali sporting success story like the one of Lama jee.


  1. Sujay Lama, a champion in the sport of Tennis, he is a graduate of St. Joseph College, school department, Darjeeling, India. His Tennis school coach was Mr. John West, a Britisher at St. Joseph's College, North Point, Darjeeling.
