Player Profile: Neha Aggarwal

Neha Aggarwal is a gritty player and one of the top players from the Northern part of India. Being a top player from the North is already a challenge, with not too many players to look up to or train with. But Neha is used to winning many such battles. This girl with film star looks and the poise of a suave businesswoman does not hesitate to deal with problems head on.

One such commendable achievement is the fact that she has remained among the top players of the country despite having to give up her favourite rubber. She is one of the very few women from India to make a mark on the biggest stage of all, the Olympic Games.

With age on her side, and with her never say die attitude, Neha is bound to go places. We would not be surprised if she plays an even bigger role and brings glory to the sport and country in many avatars.
