Roland Garros finalist
Mansour Bahrami
played with a frying pan
As a kid, Iranian tennis player Mansour Bahrami could not afford to buy a tennis racquet, so he played tennis with a frying pan until the age of ten. He trained at nights in an empty swimming pool because he could not pay for lessons at a tennis court. Bahrami was lucky to be noticed by the man who became his coach, and he became a professional player and a finalist in the prestigious Roland Garros Grand Slam Tournament.
Current No.9 in ATP rankings
Kei Nishikori

Maria Sharapova
her father had to work as a dishwasher to pay for the tennis lessons
