Lawn Tennis wonder Natasha Marie-Anne Palha stays on as Dempo Goodwill Ambassador for yet another year, 2016-17, in which she pits herself against higher ranked players in higher-rated lawn tennis tournaments of prize money levels of US$25000 in pursuit of her determined bid to volley her way into the world top 300 women player bracket.
22-year old Natasha, who plays right-handed with a double-handed back-hand, is India’s No. 5 Singles Player in the AITA Women’s rankings and, similarly, No. 5 in its Doubles rankings. She is DEMPO’s first and longest running goodwill ambassador, proving versatile on a number of surfaces – grass, hard-court and clay. Her current standing in the ITF World Singles rankings is 556 (with a recent career-high of 492), and 516 in the Doubles (with a recent career high of 418).
The House of Dempo is proud to be supporting Natasha in her pursuits by means of the Dempo Goodwill Ambassador Scheme in its unique initiative to fast-track youthful Goan sporting excellence on to the highest levels of international tennis!
