DUBAI: Ushna Suhail hails from a family of tennis players. Her grandfather, Khwaja Iftikhar was a Tennis stalwart. Carrying on the tradition, Ushna became the first female Tennis player from Pakistan to hold an international ranking in Women Tennis Association.
As a sportswoman, Ushna laments the lack of international sporting events in Pakistan. She feels that this has been the biggest challenge for her.

She also feels that her sponsor has had major role in her career and that it was because of her sponsor that she was able to travel abroad and participate in several tournaments
