Re: BWF Thomas & Uber Cup Finals

I think Lakshya Sen's rise made a big difference. He playing first singles meant Srikanth and Prannoy faced relatively easier opponents. Just shows our depth in singles. Of course I am taking nothing away from them. A 100% record is simply amazing.

Re: BWF Thomas & Uber Cup Finals

Axelsen will beat Lakshya Sen. Antonsen will beat Srikanth and our 2nd doubles pair would lose anyway. Need at least 2 upsets if we have to win this.

Re: European Challengers 2022

Lee was a special talent. We can't compare the current crop with him. And Lee-Hesh in doubles was how great doubles combinations should play. And they had some strong rivals in the Aussies, Swedes and so on. Again can't compare their doubles with the current lot.

Re: Sania Mirza Comeback - 2020-22

We have so many players, male and female for whom we run threads. None of them are able to make an impact at the ATP/ WTA level. And here is a semi-retired player who still continues to make waves on the WTA doubles circuit. Wonder when we shall get out next Sania.
