This was his first time watching the tennis tournament live. The actor says, "It was like a dream come true. I have watched the games many times on TV but seeing it live is something else. I went with my younger brother. It was an unbelievable experience to watch Rafael Nadal live! We had good seats too, so we enjoyed the matches even more."
When asked who his favourite to win was, he says, "Since Roger (Federer) was out, it had to be Nadal. It was an unforgettable moment for me to watch Nadal play the match point and lie on the ground after winning." In the finals, his entire family was present, "I went with my family (father Vilasrao Deshmukh, mother, the two brothers and Amit's wife)."
Riteish says it was an impromptu decision to attend the tennis grand slam event. "It was not fixed. The timing was such that it all came around. I am so glad that it happened and I could go. It shall remain an unforgettable experience!"
