Re: Ramkumar Ramanathan thread

Ram should not come to the net unnecessarily. He's losing all of those points. Coming in on a short ball is fine, but I don't like this mindless rushing to the net, especially on clay! :D I agree. Even in last service game, he came into net almost on every second point. Needs to be patient on clay....

Re: Ramkumar Ramanathan thread

It is 3-3 in the second set. Looking quite close in second set with no breakpoints so far.

And RamK gets the crucial break for 5-4. Now, he has a chance to serve for the match.

Re: Taiwan/China/Korea Challengers- April/May 2017

Nope. There was 1 more late withdrawal and Prajnesh gets into main draw. So, as of now both Yuki and Prajnesh are in the main draw. We will have to for the main draw to see the confirmation though as Yuki has the habit of puling out at last moment particularly when he is returning from injuries . :D

Re: Taiwan/China/Korea Challengers- April/May 2017

This guy Oscar Otte is not at all tired. :D He has won 2 more matches and gone thru to the SF here upsetting 4th seed Martin in QF. Prajnesh was really unlucky to draw him in the first round. For next week's Gimchen challenger in Korea, Prajnesh is now 1 out from main draw. 2 special exempt spots ar...

Re: Ramkumar Ramanathan thread

wow...that was a huuuuuuuge surprise. I left for an early lunch with colleagues when RamK was down 1-4. I vaguely remember sneaking a peek into my phone for an update and saw a score of 4-5 with the Argentine serving for the set (not sure if this really happened, or I was hallucinating, though No, ...

Re: Ramkumar Ramanathan thread

RamK took a medical time out at 1-4 down. I think for blisters on foot or something. But, after he came back he held at love and broke back to make it 3-4. Andreozzi took a medical time out at 4-4. It looks both are trying to unnerve each other. RamK kept his composure to hold for 5-5. And now RamK ...

Re: Ramkumar Ramanathan thread

And he missed 2 breakpoints at 15-40 on Andreozzie serve in the third game of the second set. He is now serving at 1-2 in the second set.

And he gets broken for 1-3 now. Again tried to serve an volley on second serve on the break point and got passed. :-(

Re: Ramkumar Ramanathan thread

Andreozzi served 2 double faults there to help RamK but it was good passing shot by RamK on breakpoint. Now he must hold. He saved 2 break point and held for 4-4. Andreozzi held at love for 5-4. Another tough service game coming up for RamK. Damn, RamK gets broken after deuce to lose the first set 4...

Re: ITF Women Circuit, Thailand- April/May 2017

Yes, that is a bad meltdown by Prerna.

Also bad loss for Karman. She had beaten the same player 6 months back in Thailand. Not sure what is wrong. But, her level seems to have dropped particularly in last 3-4 months.

Re: Ramkumar Ramanathan thread

Not yet sure, Rajeev. The cut off for last year's French open qualies was 242 last year. It was even higher in 2015. So, as of now it is touch and go for RamK. He needs to win today's match and then he will surely be in.
