A forward

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?' "
