Nice article, except for the claim that Aditya Sachdeva has produced India's first homegrown top-100 player: Vijay and Anand Amritraj were homegrown too (until they became top 100), as was Ramesh Krishnan, and so indeed was Leander Paes. Before ATP rankings were formalized, we had a host of top-50 players who were homegrown.

I think he may have meant being the coach at the time the player got to top-100. I don't know if those in the pre-ATP era had Indian coaches when they crossed top-100. Leander's coach when he was getting into ATP first was David OMeara at BAT, but LP did not really have a regular coach once he went past top-500 or top-250, though LP can still be considered "home-grown" as he wasn't really in a foreign academy much.

Vijay Amritraj was coached by Akhtar Ali for quite some time when at his peak.

Rather both Ramanathan and Ramesh Krishnan spent their finishing time at Harry Hopman ' s academy. Of course, they were initially trained by TK Ramanathan.

So did Leander at around 17 or 18 if I remember correctly. At Harry Hopman's.

By that yardstick, Yuki has been training at Bolletieri's since he was 15.

Yuki now ranked at #340 and goes ahead of Sumit and Prajnesh ( who is just 1 spot behind Yuki) to India #3. First 2 weeks of Chinese challengers will be crucial for him as he has 41 points to defend there.

Why isn't he playing this week? Is it that there are 3 weeks of challengers ahead in China? but for that to take 2 week break is a bit surprising.

With DC and F1, Yuki had enough match practice, so taking a break for training and preparing well is not a bad idea. I would rather he take a 2 week break and do well in that challenger series than exposing himself to risk playing a depleted field for lower/short-term gains.

Yuki seems to have gained some serious muscle. Look at those biceps in the pic! :clap:

It is very disheartening to see players of Yuki's calibre doing so well and he is still struggling to make even top 100. Earlier sock and now istomin, donskoy, khachanov, nishioka, etc. I am still hoping that Yuki will have a breakthrough tournament like nishioka is having at indian Wells. He lost in FQR to ymer, got in as lucky loser,defeated the same player in R1 and then got two big wins against karlovic and berdych and is now slated to play against wawrinka. Time is running past Yuki and he should now try to play more atp qualies rather than challengers.

For a guy (Nishioka) who is all of 5'7", beating a giant like Karlovic 6-4, 6-3, is really commendable! :notworthy:

Yuki is 329 in the live rankings. Winning today's QF would take him to 307. Long climb back!

Of course the real prizes come from making the final -- and even better, from winning the title (which would catapult him to 237).

Jack Sock offseason training video

Yuki probably has a close to top 60-75 game but likely needs to work on his physical fitness to actually get there. In one of his interviews, he indicated that he has embraced gym workouts and it is beginning to show in his physique and he now can dominate 100-200 level opponents for short spells in a way he didn't earlier. I think his offseason with the like of Yen Hsun Lu helped.

However, he probably needs work on cardio fitness as well as recovery/nutrition etc. when compared to the elite athletes. Whoever travels with him (if anyone) should ideally be helping him with his fitness/recovery beyond any help on tennis skills and tactics.
