After the physically and mentally exhausting match of the previous day, Vijay was looking a lot better at the awards ceremony, though understandably nowhere near 100%. Vijay and Miguel both entered the court upon much anticipation. Both players were heartily congratulated for their efforts. There they both stood on Centre Court... one with an incredible defeat, and one with an amazing victory.
Finally, as Vijay held up the winner's trophy, all his emotions that he had held back for so long had finally poured out uncontrollably in the form of tears. The floodgates of emotions were now open, and as the crowd cheered on loudly, there was hardly a dry eye in the stadium and no one was sitting down. Vijay's friends were also all teary-eyed. They knew the significance of this moment. Vijay Rajagopalan had finally broken out of his winless slump, cleared all expectations and most of all, closed the book on Nisha for good!
Through the course of one match, everyone got to see a young tennis player throw up…and grow up. You never get to see that in one ticket!
A few days later, Roshni called Vijay over to tell him 'some important news'. The two met at Marina Beach.
“Vijay, I have something important to tell you”, says Roshni.
“Yeah, I know”, says Vijay with a knowing smile.
Roshni was shocked. “You do? How?!”
Their eyes met… for a long time ..and the rest …is history!
