How's the crowd support for this thing this time? Last year was alright since it was the first season and it's good to see our guys get a chance to play with the bigger names.

Yes but our guys are only playing doubles here and the juniors who have been drafted in the squads are only sitting on the side lines. I do not see how this will help development of game of our players. They are better off playing somewhere else instead.

Wow! Divij playing singles ahead of Feliciano Lopez. Wonder if Lopez was injured based on the 1-5 trouncing he and Divij got against Verdasco/Vishnu....

Having said that, Divij ran Verdasco pretty close in the singles and lost 3-5....

Yes Lopez was injured & Divij put up a decent show.
In the last Group B match, Hyderabad Aces beat Nagpur Orangers 23-21 to make the final from Group B. So the final of CTL2 will be played between Punjab Marshalls & Hyderabad Aces.

Just curious. Do our juniors get paid for being on the team? It is good if they are! I am not sure what they have to gain if they are not getting paid. I don't buy this "learning from seniors" theory!

So they learn nothing from Hingis, Baghdatis, Rusedski, Karlovic, Johansson, Corretja etc.? They did not hold this in 2016. So, it is gone for good?
