NWMI member and Tennis Editor of The Times of India, Prajwal Hegde, was awarded the Ron Bookman Media Excellence Award in the 2021 ATP Awards.
Hegde has been with The Times of India since 2005, and has also worked with Mid-Day in Mumbai and Deccan Herald in Bangalore. She is the author of What’s Good About Falling. Besides tennis, she has also covered other sports like cricket and athletics.
The ATP report quoted her, “I’m very, very happy. As an Indian, covering a global sport that runs on the wheels of individual excellence, where we’ve come up short in recent years, you are on the periphery of things… This award is recognition that my work is relevant internationally too.”
