Re: Ankita Raina thread

Despite the loss in the final, a fantastic effort by the India #1 woman player. Ankita has shown this week that she belongs at this level. I'm sure it'll give her a great platform to build on. That Luan (in Anhui province) was hot and humid may have played to her advantage, but there are a lot of ve...

Re: Sumit Nagal thread

Fully agree. The quality of his play this week -- suggested by the comprehensiveness of his wins, including a double bagel of the top seed and a 62 62 triumph over a guy who thrashed Istomin in an ATP tour event a few weeks ago -- is good enough to be winning matches comfortably at the Challenger le...

Re: Sumit Nagal thread

What fabulous play from Sumit this week. He will soon be a serious challenger for one of the two Davis Cup singles slots.

Notable in Indian tennis this week

We had a thread with a title like this, but I don't think we've used it in the past 5-7 years. So I've started this one to celebrate the wonderfully pleasant surprise this week -- from Ankita Raina, who beat a string of much higher-ranked Chinese players to make the final of a US$60K tournament (bas...

The woeful first week for Indians in Singapore ended with VSP losing the doubles QF too:

Re: Ankita Raina thread

Live rankings put her at 266 now (up from 281 before the match), with a possibility of jumping to 244 (where Daniela Hantuchova now sits) if she wins the final.

Re: $15K Singapore F1-F3, May 22-June 11, 2017

We've had intermittent rain throughout the day today, but most courts are floodlit in Singapore, so they would have played on one of those or perhaps indoors. Both the 2015 Wimbledon junior doubles champions did well today in Futures singles on different continents. Nam Hoang Ly is now at his career...

It looks better every day! Let's take out the top seed and then win the title!!
