I was born in Lithuania where tennis is not a popular sport. Recently, the rising star Berankis had increased an interest in this sport. I believe it needs just a time and decent tennis academies that can change the image of tennis in Lithuania. Of course, some support from the Government is essential to achieve that.
By the way, I'm a bit proud of my name, because many people from tennis world can pronounce it clearly as former tennis star Gerulaitis had a same name
