Arthur Ashe, the legendary Wimbledon player was dying of AIDS which he got due to infected blood he received during a heart surgery in 1983.
From world over, he received letters from his fans, one of which
conveyed: ‘Why does GOD have to select you for such a bad disease’?
To this Arthur Ashe replied:
‘The world over — 50 million children start playing tennis, 5 million
learn to play tennis, 500,000 learn professional tennis, 50,000 come to
the circuit, 5000 reach the grand slam, 50 reach Wimbledon, 4 to semi
final, 2 to the finals, when I was holding a cup I never asked GOD ‘Why me?’. And today in pain I should not be asking GOD ‘Why me?’
