Re: Sumit Nagal thread

Yes, even though it was a loss today the scoreline against 320th ranked player is encouraging .

Re: Ramkumar Ramanathan thread

The last 2 weeks were very critical for him as he had 50 points to defend and was in danger of spiraling down in the 300 but in his true grit in the last two weeks he has almost achieved those 50 points and with Savanah,Karshi,Samarkand comming up for the next 3 weeks he is well set to get into 175...

Re: Sumit Nagal thread

And he started with a win. At $75K(+H) Ostrava Challenger, Czech Republic (Clay) [Q1] Sumit Nagal (IND,380) d. (WC) PatriK Rikl (CZE,NR) 64 75 18 year old Rikl was ranked 28 in juniors last year and has hardly played in pros. So, his being unranked in pros is a bit misleading. That is a decent win b...

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

A bit strange of Siddharth Rawat to chose the tough part of going thru play challenger qualies. He needs to first start reaching later stages at futures level before trying to move to challenger level.

Re: Ramkumar Ramanathan thread

RamK missed another match point with Arnaboldi serving at 3-5 ad-out in third set. He holds. Now, RamK has a big task to serve it out.

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...
