Arthur Ashe, the legendary Wimbledon player was dying of AIDS which he got due 2 infected blood he received during a heart surgery in 1983.
He received letters from his fans, one of which conveyed: "Why does God has to select u for such a bad disease?"
...to this Arthur Ashe replied:
50 million children started playing tennis,
5 million learn to play tennis,
5,00,000learn professional tennis,
50,000 come to the circuit,
5,000 reached grand slam,
50 reach Wimbledon,
4 to the semifinals,
2 to the final
when I was holding the cup I never asked God 'Why Me?'
and now in the pain I should not be asking God 'Why Me?'
