Re: Roland Garros 2017

Also couldn't watch Ram's match as it happened at the exact same time. Watch Rajeev's match a bit on Tuesday. He was dominating it with a 6-2 5-4 (with a break up) score. He didn't lose more than 1 point in his last 3 service games while the German's serve was almost always under pressure. I can't p...

Re: Roland Garros 2017

Watched Yuki's match on Monday. His opponent had a pretty big first serve and solid on both FH/BH but nothing really big and you would expect a fit Yuki to handle these players given his recent form. It started off exactly like that and within like 11 mins, Yuki was 3-1 up. He then had a mediocre se...

Re: Indian Origin Players Thread

Naiktha Bains won her first ITF Singles title ($15k) last week in Tunisia. It has been difficult transition to the Pros for her thus far though.. she is around 19.4 yrs old and is ranked around #480. Hopefully can be a top-200 player in couple of years.

Re: India Softball Thread

An update on the sport in India, there seems to be structure coming along (from me following the Rafa Nadal academy in Andhra). There are the Jr & Snr National Championships coming up which will be used to pick the teams for the Mens / Womens World Championship in July Most of the Andhra players...

Re: Turn pro at 18 yrs or go to US college on tennis scholarship

I am skeptical of crowd funding in general for such endeavors, but more so when there are zero useful details on the campaign. In Switzerland, noticed few campaigns but they focus on specific aspects (say to participate in Orange Bowl, to fund the Clay Court swing with a coach ). I agree though wit...

Re: Turn pro at 18 yrs or go to US college on tennis scholarship

Same stance for me too vis-a-vis Yuki & Solanki.

Regd unethical: I spoke from a donor perspective. Lot of those donations are less than Rs 5k and so most likely comes from middle-class folks. But I guess I am the odd one out usually in these aspects :p

Re: Turn pro at 18 yrs or go to US college on tennis scholarship

Sorry I was not clear. I am perfectly fine with indiaforsports.com as the platform taking the cut. The concern for me is that I spoke to the personal marketing agent of Velevan (not a indiaforsports.com employee as such). The campaign appears to be not as necessary from the funds perspective (he is ...

Re: Turn pro at 18 yrs or go to US college on tennis scholarship

I had noticed a similar campaign for Velavan Senthilkumar about 2 weeks back: https://www.indiaforsports.com/campaign/velavan-senthilkumar Seeing that Velevan was Jr.1, already winning most of his matches against the 60-100 ranked players and almost all the previous 10 yr Jr. British Open winners ar...

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

A loss in the next round of doubles would be timely and just the right amount of match practice then! :p :D

Re: Ramkumar Ramanathan thread

Great to see these string of wins. I haven't watched any match of Ram for quite a while - has he become more aggressive on the backhand that quickly (I don't remember him taking a big break too). I mean this is irrespective of his next match result - hoping for the best :) Also yes I booked my ticke...

Re: Davis Cup 2017 - India

That wouldn't be a bad thing, actually. Federer won't play, anyway. There might be a good chance of Wawrinka not playing too. Without these two stars, we can certainly fancy our chances against the Swiss. @Vishnu: You may get lucky enough to personally witness an awesome win in an "away" ...

:notworthy:

So sad just when Yuki was back to his best :(. I guess now the Uzbek tie will be a meaningless affair :-(

Re: Pranjala Yadlapalli thread

Perhaps her thinktank felt that her game needed changes to compete / move up on the pro tour and decided to invest in 2 months training at the JTCC
