Re: Roland Garros 2017

And to rub salt in the wound, the one who qualified for main draw from Yuki's section is Italian Stefano Napolitano whom Yuki had easily beaten in straight sets in the Shenzhen challenger in March. :-(

Re: Sumit Nagal thread

Yes, he seems to be slowly getting back into groove. The fact that he was willing to go thru qualies at this week's futures indicates that he feel he needs as much match practice as possible to get back to where he was before injury. Next he is up against top seed. At $25K Romania F2 Futures 2017, B...

Re: Sudirman Cup 2017

China is formidable in all 5 matches. The only match where we will go with higher ranked player is in Sindhu' match against either Sun Yu or Chen Yufei. In all other matches we will go in huge underdogs. So, it is futile to expect anything more than a 1-4 loss. 2-3 would be great. Anything more will...

Re: Ankita Raina thread

Very good win by Ankita considering her recent form. She did not have a top 300 win before this in 2017. Also it is good that these wins come in a 60K tournament which will give her important points.

Re: Roland Garros 2017

Yuki's current ranking of 241 is not truly reflective of his current level of play as his points are earned only from half the year due to injury last year. I think he may be playing at a level close to his injury protected ranking of 127 or slightly below around 150 least. So, he lost to a player r...

Re: Sudirman Cup 2017

Indonesia beats Denmark 3-2 which makes it a 3 way tie in our group but based on ties won India finished second and Denmark topped the group. However, we get the worst possible draw in QF. We face China in QF. :damn: Any of the other 3 group toppers - Denmark, Korea or Taiwan would have been ok to m...

Re: Sumit Nagal thread

It seems he was a tired guy as he retired after losing the first set to Sumit. At $25K Romania F2 Futures, Clay [R1] (5) Sumit NAGAL (IND,405) d. Nicolae FRUNZA (ROM,580) 62 retd. So, this turns out be the first ATP point that Sumit has earned since his return to the circuit. Next, [R2] (5) Sumit NA...

Re: Prajnesh Gunneswaran thread

Prajnesh is making full transition to challenger tour this year and is finding it difficult to match his game to the players at this level. This is typical of most Indian players. Very few Indians players have good success ratio at challenger level. Even RamK who has been trying at it for last 2-3 y...

Re: Yuki Bhambri

And he is also in the entry list of Nottingham challenger the week after that with his injury protected ranking. That makes 8th SE spot that he will use up. It leaves only 1 more for him to be used either at third week of grass challenger at Ilkely or at Wilmbledon qualies if it falls within his eli...

Great work today by Ashwini in both womens and mixed doubles with her respective partners which ensured the win for us and our singles favourites Srikanth and Sindhu did...
