Re: Roland Garros 2017

@VReddy, did you investigate setting up that charity further?

I would be in for supporting that financially (along with 100% match from my employer) if there was one which supported Indian sportsmen and women with promise.

Re: Champions Trophy, 2017

Outside of Kohli (and Rahul who is injured), it is a poor ODI batting lineup.

Karthik again showing why he is not international quality at all in his 9 ball duck.

Re: Champions Trophy, 2017

Indian bowling showing its might in the warm up match by bowling out NZ for 189.

Batting unsurprisingly off colour so far though Kohli looks sharp. Hoping that Dhawan can scratch around long enough to recover some form, he is an ICC event giant after all.

Re: Anirban Lahiri - PB WR #33 (28-Mar-15), India #1

2 double bogies in the last 4 holes and another missed cut for Anirban. The slide continues.

I think it is a toss up between clay and grass. Clay might be better on the knees.

We needed Ashwini to play first (since she was playing both XD and WD) and that forced the WS tie to be later. At least based on badmintoncentral forum.

Re: Roland Garros 2017

PKB is tilting against windmills here. No one is talking about match practice but the reality that Polansky is in horrible form (beating a 700+ ranked player does not change it) and Yuki should have beaten him. Polansky unsurprisingly lost in his QR2 match as well. Yuki was correctly considered the ...

Re: Roland Garros 2017

The ATP site hadn't updated with the Lyon qualifiers but beating a 700+ ranked player clearly puts Polansky's recent form in a completely different light.

Re: ATP World Tour Masters/ WTA Clay court season 2017

Sania's age is irrelevant from a doubles perspective. 6 of the current top 10 are above 30.

Agree with prasen on general theme, Sania may yet find another partner who can combine well with and become a GS winner with.

Re: Sudirman Cup 2017

Ashwini is a potential star! And having a world class doubles coach is starting to pay off. One area where the doubles teams can significantly improve is holding on to their leads, as India let go of an advantage in the deciding game against Denmark in both the women's and mixed doubles on Monday. T...

Re: Sudirman Cup 2017

Agree w/sameer here.

Our MS are all inconsistent so not a bad idea to use matchups to decide whom to start.

If Ashwini can repeat this tomorrow against Indonesia, we will win at least one of WD or XD and it will come down to Srikanth's match on who wins the tie.

Re: Roland Garros 2017

Very poor performance from Yuki against the Canadian who was on a 7 match losing streak coming into this (0-5 on clay).

Re: ATP Tennis/Non-India Davis Cup

In a best of 5, Wawrinka is the only other player outside of Djokovic who can beat Nadal at RG IMO. Too soon for Thiem and Zverev. Of course, it is Nadal and his knees are broken so that can come into play.

Re: Vidit Santosh Gujrathi WR#47 Oct 2016

Vidit is again close to the magical 2700 mark with a live ELO rating of 2691.5 after a 3rd place at the Asian chess championships, which also guarantees a spot at the chess world cup. Others from that generation like Adhiban continue to flounder. Aravindh Chithambaram looks to be the next hope for h...
